We perform a study of soliton generation by a passively mode-locked laser using a slow saturable absorber.
We show theoretically that multisoliton regimes of generation are possible. The values of the parameters are
found where one-, two-, or three-soliton solutions exist. © 1999 Optical Society of America

The passively mode-locked laser1­5
has been a much-
studied device in recent years. Ultrashort-pulse genera-
tion in laser systems makes use of a variety of schemes,
including figure-of-eight fiber laser design,1
