Abstract

We report on new techniques enabling both the mitigation of supermode laser noise and highly precise setting of the pulse repetition rate (PRR) in a soliton harmonically mode locked (HML) fiber laser employing nonlinear polarization evolution (NPE). The principle of operation relies on resonant interaction between the soliton pulses and a narrow-band continuous wave (CW) component cooperatively generated within the same laser cavity. In contrast to our recent findings [Opt. Lett. 46, 5747 (2021) and Opt. Lett. 46, 5687 (2021)], the new methods are implemented through the specific adjustment of the HML laser cavity only and do not require the use of an external tunable CW laser source.
