Abstract: Pulse breaking recovery is numerically demonstrated in dispersion-managed fiber lasers designed for generating high peak power ultrashort optical pulses. It is shown that due to the cavity boundary condition, local pulse breaking can be absorbed by the pulse propagation in erbium-doped fiber with normal dispersion. Consequently, high peak power transform-limited pulses beyond the gain-bandwidth limitation could be generated.
