Abstract

We present a new pulse regime in a stretched ultrafast fiber laser based on numerical simulations. The pulse breaking due to high-order soliton evolution in the passive fiber is recovered to a smooth pulse in the gain fiber with normal dispersion. The new pulse regime formed by the two nonlinear processes makes the ultrafast fiber laser generate ultra-broadband, ultrashort duration, high energy and large breathing ratio pulses. Our work gives insights into the nonlinear dynamics in fiber lasers and has potential for a better design of the stretched fiber lasers.
