We report theoretically and experimentally on the formation and compensation of dissipative soliton (DS) in an all-normal dispersion fiber laser mode locked with semiconductor type of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) absorber fabricated by vertical evaporation method. The pulses with bandwidth of 2.2 nm and duration of 11.7 ps are obtained at 1051 nm. The DS is linearly chirped and can be compressed to 1.8 ps by a grating pair. By this method the carbon nanotubes absorbers is can be mass produced cost effectively and easier to control the absorber parameters, e.g. initial transmission of the absorber, therefore this method is more suitable to be industrialized.
