Optical fiber soliton lasers

G. E. Town, N. N. Akhmediev, J. M. Soto-Crespo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Experimental and theoretical developments in optical fiber soliton lasers are reviewed. We first review the fundamentals of optical fiber soliton lasers from an experimental viewpoint, including soliton generation and control mechanisms, and highlight the similarities between developments in soliton fiber lasers and soliton transmissions systems. We then review the mathematical theory of soliton lasers based on a master equation description, highlighting some interesting solutions and recent results concerning soliton stability.
