Abstract

For the first time, a group-VI single element nanomaterial was used as the optical saturable absorber (SA) to generate laser pulses. With two-dimensional (2D) tellurene as a passive Q-switch, 1.06 μm and 1.3 μm pulse laser operations were realized from a diode-pumped Nd:YAG crystal. The shortest pulse widths were 98 ns and 178 ns, and the highest peak powers were 2.68 W and 2.45 W, respectively. Our research determines that tellurene is an excellent SA material in the near-infrared region.
