We report the discovery of a quantization of the separation between phase-locked soliton pairs that is related
to the radiation waves known as Kelly sidebands, in a passively mode-locked fiber ring laser. Our numerical
simulations that predict this phenomenon have been confirmed by our experimental results. © 2003 Optical

Multiple-pulse generation is a well-known phenome-
non in passively mode-locked laser systems that
appears when the gain exceeds certain thresholds.
Formation of double, triple, and more pulses has been
