Abstract: Various striking nonlinear evolution dynamics have been observed in mode-locked fiber lasers owing to the high peak power of the solitons. Herein, we numerically demonstrate the dynamical generation of dispersiondependent pure-quartic solitons (PQS) molecules in a fiber laser. We discover the evolution from a singlepulse initial condition to different types of pulsating PQS molecules with enhanced net fourth-order dispersion, indicating that the internal motion and energy exchange can be both quasi-periodical and periodical. Furthermore, we reveal that the generation of these two types of pulsating PQS molecules is associated with a gain competition effect between the two sub pulses during mode-locking. Finally, we propose a new method that can achieve the transition between a loose PQS molecule and a tight PQS molecule. Enlightened by the numerical results, we speculate that more internal motion within the PQS molecule will be discovered, which will promote a deep insight into the physical mechanism behind.
