Passively mode-locked Yb3+ :Sc2 SiO5 laser with reflection-type single-walled carbon nanotube absorber

Journal Article

A reflection-type single-walled carbon nanotube saturable absorber fabricated by a vertical evaporation method was to our knowledge first used in a passively mode-locked Yb3+:Sc2SiO5(Yb:SSO) laser. The laser operated at a repetition frequency of 94 MHz with a central wavelength of 1062.6 nm. A short pulse duration of 1.8 ps was produced with an average power of 349mW; and the highest pulse energy of 3.7 nJ, corresponding to its maximum peak power, can reach 2.1 kW. © 2012 Optical Society of America.
