Xueming Liu is a specially appointed professor of "QiuShi" at Zhejiang University. He was a National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholar. He was honored to the National Hundred, Thousand and Ten Thousand Talent Project. He was honored to the Wang Daheng Optical Award (Young & middle-aged scientific and technical personnel award). He received a special allowance from the Government of the State Council. He was elected to Most Cited Chinese Researchers by Elsevier from 2014 to 2018. Three papers were chosen as annual TOP 100 MOST CITED CHINESE PAPERS PUBLISHED IN INTERNATIONAL JOURNALS. One of his papers was selected as "Important Achievements of Chinese Optics in 2014". One of his papers was selected as "Top Ten Progress of Chinese Optics in 2018".
Ultra-short high-energy pulse fiber lasers can be found important applications in the areas of optic communication, sensing, precision machining, and material processing. How to increase the power and energy of the laser pulse, control and utilize the complex nonlinearity, and develop the key technologies for the applications of high-power, high-energy, and ultra-broadband all-fiber ultra-short pulse lasers become the important scientific issues for the exploration of new phenomena and schemes as well as the breakthrough of technical systems about fiber laser pulses. We briefly review some key techniques and important progresses about mode-locked fiber lasers, discuss the merits and drawbacks of various fiber lasers and pulses, also introduce our research results in the past several years about how to improve the performance of fiber lasers. We particularly discuss the typical behaviors of fiber lasers operating in different dispersion regimes, and demonstrate both experimentally and numerically the formation mechanisms, output features, and dynamic evolutions of dissipative solitons.
