In this paper, we experimentally demonstrate two types of dissipative soliton resonant (DSR) and noise-like pulse (NLP) in a mode-locked fiber laser using the nonlinear optical loop mirror (NOLM). By appropriately adjusting the polarization states, the switchable generation of DSR and NLP can be achieved from one mode-locked fiber laser. By adjusting the pump power, the pulse width of DSR increases gradually from 2.45 to 13.35 ns with a constant peak intensity, while the NLP just has a little increase, even splitting into two narrower pulses at higher pump power. Two types of DSR and NLP have the same pulse periods of 1.29 μs, corresponding to the cavity length of the fiber laser. The obtained results display the evolution process of DSR pulse and NLP in mode-locked fiber laser and have some application in optical sensing, spectral reflectometry, micromachining, and other relative domains.
