Abstract

We found two kinds of soliton explosions based on the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation without nonlinearity saturation and high-order effects, demonstrating the soliton explosions as an intrinsic property of the dissipative systems. The two kinds of soliton explosions are caused by the dual-pulsing instability and soliton erupting, respectively. The transformation and relationship between the two kinds of soliton explosions are discussed. The parameter space for the soliton explosion in a mode-locked laser cavity is found numerically. Our results can help one to obtain or avoid the soliton explosions in mode-locked fiber lasers and understand the nonlinear dynamics of the dissipative systems.
