Extreme pulse dynamics in mode-locked lasers

Chang, Wonkeun; Soto-Crespo, J.M.; Vouzas, Peter; Akhmediev, Nail


This chapter is devoted to dissipative solitons that produce sharp peaks (spikes) on top of its high amplitude central part. The peak amplitude of these spikes can exceed several times the amplitude of the soliton base. This unusual phenomenon is found for solutions of the complex cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau equation (CGLE) in a special region of its free parameters. Depending on them, the spikes can appear chaotically or regularly. Both regimes are discussed in this chapter. The spikes with...[Show more]
