We observed, numerically and experimentally, multiple-period pulsations of the soliton parameters in a
passively mode-locked fiber laser. Pulsation periods can vary from a few to hundreds of round trips. Short and
long period pulsations can appear in combination. The new periods in the soliton modulation appear at
bifurcation points related to certain values of the cavity parameters.

I. INTRODUCTION
Laser systems generating ultrashort pulses [1­3] have a
number of important applications in optics and telecommu-
nications. The stability of the pulse generation from one
round trip to another is one of the important qualities of such
