M. Pang, W. He, and P. St.J. Russell, Optics Letters, 41, 4601-4604 (2016)

We report a Tm-doped soliton fiber laser passively mode-locked by intense optoacoustic interactions in a short length of solid-core silica photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with a nanobore in core-center. A repetition rate of 1.446 GHz pulse is achieved, corresponding to the 52nd harmonic of the 27.8 MHz cavity round-trip frequency. Strong optoacoustic interactions in this PCF-based, Tm-doped fiber laser ensure stable and repeatable gigahertz-rate pulse train generation at 1.85 μm wavelength, with a high supermode noise suppression ratio and low pulse timing jitter.
