dc.description.abstractWe report the observation of self-similar propagation of bound-state pulses in an ytterbium-doped double-clad fiber laser. A bound state of two positively chirped parabolic pulses with 5.4 ps duration separated by 14.9 ps is obtained, with 1.7 nJ of energy per pulse. These pulses are extra-cavity compressed to 100 fs. For higher pumping power and a different setting of the intra-cavity polarization controllers, the laser generates a bound state of three chirped parabolic pulses with different time separations and more than 1.5 nJ energy per pulse. Perturbation of this bound state by decreasing pump power results in the generation of a single pulse and a two-pulse bound state both structures traveling at the same velocity along the cavity. A possible explanation of the zero relative speed by a particular phase relation of the bound states is discussed. ©2006 Optical Society of America.en_US
