Abstract

We demonstrate the first all-fiber multimode spatiotemporally mode-locked laser. The oscillator generates dissipative soliton pulses at 1036 nm with 12 mW average power, 6.24 ps duration, and 24.3 MHz repetition rate. The reported pulse energy (0.5 nJ) represents -4 times improvement over the previously reported single-mode all-normal dispersion mode-locked lasers with multimode interference-based filtering. Numerical simulations are performed to investigate the cavity and spatiotemporal mode-locking dynamics. The all-fiber oscillator we present shows promise for practical use since it can be fabricated simply. (C) 2020 Optical Society of America under the terms of the OSA Open Access Publishing Agreement
