Zhang, M and Kelleher, EJR and Torrisi, F and Sun, Z and Hasan, T and Popa, D and Wang, F and Ferrari, AC and Popov, SV and Taylor, JR (2012) Tm-doped fiber laser mode-locked by graphene-polymer composite. Optics Express, 20. pp. 25077-25084. ISSN 1094-4087Full text not available from this repository.
We demonstrate mode-locking of a thulium-doped fiber laser operating at 1.94 μm, using a graphene-polymer based saturable absorber. The laser outputs 3.6 ps pulses, with ∼0.4 nJ energy and an amplitude fluctuation ∼0.5%, at 6.46 MHz. This is a simple, low-cost, stable and convenient laser oscillator for applications where eye-safe and low-photon-energy light sources are required, such as sensing and biomedical diagnostics. © 2012 Optical Society of America.
