Paper Abstract

Vector soliton is obtained in erbium-doped fiber laser via nonlinear polarization rotation techniques. In experiment, we observe the every 4- and 7-pulse sinusoidal peak modulation. Temporal pulse sinusoidal peak modulation owes to evolution behavior of vector solitons in multiple polarization states. The polarizer in the laser modulates the mode-locked pulses with different polarization states into periodical pulse train intensities modulation. Moreover, the increasing pumping power lead to the appearance of the harmonic pulses and change the equivalent beat length to accelerate the polarization rotation. When the laser cavity length is the n-th multiple ratios to the beat length to maintain the mode-locking, the mode-locked vector soliton is in n-th multiple polarization states, exhibiting every n-pulse sinusoidal peak modulation.
