Paper Abstract

Ordered and disordered pattern formation of solitons is experimentally investigated in the passively mode-locked doubleclad erbium-doped fiber laser. Soliton complexes of about 500 pulses are obtained which organize in different patterns analogous the states of the matter. We have identified a soliton gas, a supersonic soliton gas flow, a soliton liquid, a soliton polycrystal and a crystal of solitons.
