Abstract

We report on the experimental observation of dissipative vector solitons (DVSs) in a dispersion-managed cavity fiber laser with large net positive cavity group velocity dispersion (GVD). Both the frequency-locked and phase-locked DVSs were observed. In addition, formation of multiple DVSs and DVS harmonic mode-locking were also experimentally revealed. Numerical simulations are in agreement of the experimental observations on the DVS formation in the fiber lasers.
