Ultrafast stretched-pulse fiber laser mode-locked by carbon nanotubes

Keywords

Nanotubes, fiber laser, saturable absorber, ultrafast pulse generation

Abstract

Ultrafast fiber sources having short pulses, broad bandwidth, high energy, and low amplitude fluctuations have widespread applications. Stretched-pulse fiber lasers, incorporating segments of normal and anomalous dispersion fibers, are a preferred means to generate such pulses. We realize a stretched-pulse fiber laser based on a nanotube saturable absorber, with 113 fs pulses, 33.5 nm spectral width and ~0.07% amplitude fluctuation, outperforming current nanotube-based designs.
