Using passively mode-locked femtosecond (fs) fiber laser and polarization maintaining fibers, the compact system of wavelength-tunable femtosecond (fs) fundamental soliton pulse generation is realized. The monocolored soliton pulse, not multicolored ones, with the ideal sech2 shape is generated, and its wavelength can be linearly shifted by varying merely the fiber-input power in the wide wavelength region of 1.56-1.78 μm for a 75-m fiber. The soliton pulses of less than 200 fs are generated with the high conversion efficiency of 75%-85%. This system can be widely used as a portable and practical wavelength-tunable fs optical pulse sources.
