Abstract.  Self-similar pulses are one of the domestic and international research hotspots in the field of nonlinear fiber optics because it can suppress optical wave breaking at high energies. The influence of pumping schemes on the characteristics of self-similar pulses in a passively mode-locked Yb-doped fiber laser is theoretically investigated. The temporal profile and optical spectrum of self-similar pulses in passively mode-locked fiber lasers of different pumping schemes are obtained in the simulation. This study focuses on analyzing the influence of gain bandwidth of gain fiber on the pulse duration, peak power, and single-pulse energy of self-similar pulses.
