Mode locking of Ceramic Nd: YAG with graphene as a saturable absorber


The mode-locking of a ceramic Nd: YAG solid-state laser (SSL) with solution processed graphene as the saturable absorber (SA) was demonstrated. Transform-limited pulses of 4 ps with an average
power of 100 mW centered at 1064 nm were generated, for a
non-dispersion compensated Nd: YAG SSL. Z-scan studies revealed that
the graphene SA had a saturation intensity of 0.87 MW cm-2 and a normalized modulation depth of 17 %. The results illustrate the potential of using graphene as a mode locker for SSLs.

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
