We show results obtained from a semiconductor saturable-absorber mirror mode-locked Ti:sapphire soliton la-
ser that was operated in the multiple-pulse regime. Double, triple, and quadruple pulses were observed when
the dispersion was decreased below a critical value. The pulse pairs and triplets were either widely separated
or closely coupled, and spectra that resembled those of constant as well as rotating phase differences between
pulses were observed. We explain our observations in the framework of the generalized complex Ginzburg­
