Abstract

Two-dimensional (2D) materials have attracted intense attention in photonics and optoelectronics for their excellent nonlinear characteristics and are applied for the generation of laser pulses. Here, an active–passive Nd:GdVO41.3 μm laser is realized by using an acousto-optic modulator and gold nanobipyramids absorber. The pulse width of 150.5 ns is obtained in the doubly Q-switched laser. The compression ratio and enhancement time are 82.6% and 16. The doubly Q-switched technology compresses the pulse width, improves the peak power, and stabilizes the pulse, illustrating that double modulation technology opens the door of controllable ultrafast lasers based on 2D materials.
