Abstract

We report on a new, to the best of our knowledge, technique enabling fine-tuning of the pulse repetition rate (PRR) of a soliton harmonically mode-locked (HML) fiber laser built on the nonlinear polarization evolution (NPE). Optical injection of an external continuous wave (CW) into the HML laser cavity is used for this purpose enabling precise PRR tuning with the elementary step equal to the fundamental PRR one-by-one. The effect exhibits strong resonance dependence on the CW laser wavelength and available in both positive and negative directions. Our findings offer important insights into the HML laser dynamics associated with the birth and annihilation of solitons in the cavity.
