Bound states of twin-pulse solitons were experimentally observed in a passively mode-locked fiber ring laser. Similar to those of single-pulse solitons, the bound states of twin-pulse solitons are marginally stable and occur at some fixed, quantized soliton separations. Our experimental investigations revealed that the formation of such bound states might be resulted from the dispersive wave mediated long-range soliton interaction in the laser.
