An Yb3+ -doped Lu2 SiO5 mode-locked laser using a reflective graphene oxide absorber

Journal Article

Reflective graphene oxide played the part of the saturable absorber to achieve a continuous wave mode-locking (CWML) laser based on Yb 3+:Lu2SiO5 (Yb:LSO) crystal for the first time. The laser operated at a repetition frequency of 87 MHz at a maximum average output power of 0.95 W with a single pulse energy of 10.9 nJ. A 9.8 ps ultra-short pulse was yielded at 1058 nm with a full width at half maximum (FWHM) of 2.09 nm, corresponding to a peak power of 1.11 kW. © 2013 Astro Ltd.
