We report our recent numerical and experimental observations of dissipative soliton interactions inside a fiber laser cavity. A bound state, formed from two pulses, may have a group velocity which differs from that of a single soliton. As a result, they can collide inside the cavity. This results in a variety of outcomes. Numerical simulations are based either on a continuous model or on a parameter-managed model of the cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau equation. Each of the models provides...[Show more]
