We report on dissipative soliton resonance (DSR) and its transformation into a type of burst-like emission in a holmium-doped fiber (HDF) laser in the large normal dispersion regime. A nonlinear amplifying loop mirror incorporating ∼118 m large normal dispersion fiber acts as an artificial saturable absorber. To the best of our knowledge, the HDF laser has the largest net normal dispersion so far. As the pump power is increased from ∼1.72 W to ∼4.80 W, the produced single pulse linearly broadens from ∼6.7 ns to ∼68.0 ns, while the output pulse peak power is clamped around ∼180.5 mW due to the peak-power-clamping effect with DSR. The sharp spectral peak indicates that DSR is realized with a large normal dispersion. With further manipulation of the polarization state, DSR can evolve into a type of burst-like emission. It is further revealed that this burst-like emission could be caused by a type of peak-power-depressing effect, which results from the competition between DSR and soliton formation.

We unveil a new type of dissipative soliton behavior in a net-normal-dispersion bidirectional ultrafast fiber laser. That is, the bidirectional dissipative solitons will always reveal similar spectral...
The study of dissipative solitons in mode-locked lasers reveals a rich landscape of interaction dynamics resulting from the interplay of nonlinearity, dispersion and dissipation. Here, we characterize...
We experimentally observed a novel pulsating soliton state with broadened Kelly sidebands in an ultrafast laser. Through simulations, we found that the synchronized and unsynchronized resonant dispers...
Conventional treatments for youth depression, such as antidepressants, have modest efficacy, side effects, and ongoing controversies regarding safety. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTM...
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is an evidence-based treatment for depression that is increasingly implemented in healthcare systems across the world. A new form of rTMS called int...

To evaluate the safety, and efficacy of Soliton's Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device for the temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.
Depression in POSTPARTUM WOMEN, usually within four weeks after giving birth (PARTURITION). The degree of depression ranges from mild transient depression to neurotic or psychotic depressive disorders. (From DSM-IV, p386)
The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
A type of FLUORESCENCE SPECTROSCOPY using two FLUORESCENT DYES with overlapping emission and absorption spectra, which is used to indicate proximity of labeled molecules. This technique is useful for studying interactions of molecules and PROTEIN FOLDING.
