Abstract

For the first time, to the best of our knowledge, we observed the pulsating dissipative solitons in a mode-locked fiber laser at normal dispersion using the dispersive-Fourier transformation technology. The artificial saturable absorbers, as well as the birefringent filter formed by the nonlinear polarization rotation, make the polarization controller an effective component to adjust the laser state from stationary to pulsating. The pulsating dissipative solitons are accompanied with the spectrum breathing and oscillating structures due to the nonlinear pulse propagation. Our results can enhance the understanding of the pulsating solitons in the dissipative systems.
