Large energy mode locking of an erbium-doped fiber laser with atomic layer graphene


We report on large energy pulse generation in an erbium-doped

fiber laser passively mode-locked with atomic layer graphene. Stable mode

locked pulses with single pulse energy up to 7.3 nJ and pulse width of 415

fs have been directly generated from the laser. Our results show that atomic

layer graphene could be a promising saturable absorber for large energy

mode… Continue

Large energy soliton erbium-doped fiber laser with a graphene-polymer composite mode locker


Due to its unique electronic property and the Pauli blocking principle, atomic layer graphene possesses wavelength-independent ultrafast saturable absorption, which can be exploited for the ultrafast photonics application. Through chemical functionalization, a graphene-polymer nanocomposite membrane was fabricated and first used to mode lock a fiber laser. Stable mode locked solitons with 3 nJ pulse energy, 700 fs… Continue

Dark pulse emission of a fiber laser


We report on the dark pulse emission of an all-normal dispersion erbium-doped fiber laser with a polarizer in cavity. We found experimentally that apart from the bright pulse emission, under appropriate conditions the

fiber laser could also emit single or multiple dark pulses. Based on numerical simulations we interpret the dark pulse formation in the laser as a result of dark soliton shaping.

Small Windmills Improved With Nanotubes

Solar panels are a widely accepted way to generate electricity if your house is off the grid or if you want to supplement power from the grid, however in some regions windmills may be much more effective. Considering that adding nanotubes to composites produces stronger, lighter components I had assumed that nanotubes would be used to produce larger windmills that can withstand higher winds. I was therefore interested to find Eagle Windpower taking a different approach in one of their product… Continue

Nanocomposites could change diabetes treatment

Ontario, Canada | Posted on December 27th, 2009

The non-invasive technology, developed by Chemical and Biochemical Engineering professor Jin Zhang at The University of Western Ontario, uses extremely small nanoparticles embedded into the hydrogel lenses. These engineered nanoparticles react with glucose molecules found in tears, causing a chemical reaction that changes their colour.

Zhang received $216,342 from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) today (Dec. 16) to… Continue

Abstract: This proposal updates the wave/particle theory of light to say that light is a regular solid, and conforms to a modified version of Euler's rule. Named the Trion-Re’, this shape creates a critical self-organizing matrix with three curved and equal faces. To account for the curvature of space, this modification shifts the rules for a platonic solid making the Trion-Re’ the sixth such regular solid and a unique structure of space/time. Traditionally, there are five Platonic Solids with… Continue

Dear Colleagues,

I am looking for a post-doctorate fellow to work on the project entitled

"Medical diagnostic tool for platelet activation evaluation from whole blood


In hemostasis, platelets rapidly adhere at sites of vessel wall injuries,

aggregate and form a hemostatic plug that is strengthened by a fibrin

network. At the onset of this phenomenon, platelets adhere on von Willebrand

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
