A passively mode-locked Nd:YVO 4 Laser with a carbon nanotube saturable absorber

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We report the mode locking of a diode pumped Nd:YVO crystal laser by using a transmission-type single-walled carbon nanotube saturable absorber. The laser operated at 1064 nm pumped by a fiber coupled laser diode with the cavity length of 1826 mm, generated a pulse width of 14 ps at a repetition rate of 82 MHz. The output power of 120 mW was obtained at the absorbed pumping power of 1400 mW. © Pleiades Publishing, Ltd., 2012. 4
