Abstract

In this work we present for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, a passively synchronized thulium (Tm) and erbium (Er) doped fiber laser mode-locked by a common graphene saturable absorber (GSA). The laser consists of two ring resonators combined with a 90 cm long common fiber branch incorporating the saturable absorber (SA). Such laser generates optical solitons centered at 1558.5 nm and 1938 nm with pulse durations of 915 fs and 1.57 ps, respectively. Both laser loops were passively synchronized at repetition frequency of 20.5025 MHz by nonlinear interaction (cross phase modulation, XPM) in common fiber branch between generated pulses. The maximum cavity mismatch of the Er-laser in synchronization regime was 0.78 mm. The synchronization mechanism was also investigated. We demonstrate that the third order nonlinearities of graphene enhance the synchronization range. In our case the range was increased about 85%. The integrated RMS timing jitter between the synchronized pulses was 67 fs.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Experimental setup of the two-color mode-locked and passively synchronized fiber laser.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Measured output spectra of the laser: a) optical soliton generated in Er-doped loop. The CW peak at 1569 nm depicted in the inset graph is originated from the unabsorbed pump power from thulium-doped laser, c) optical soliton generated at 1937.3 nm in Tm-doped loop with characteristic dips resulting from water absorption in air.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 The autocorrelation traces measured at: a) 1.55 µm, b) 2 µm outputs.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 The repetitions rates of Er- and Tm-doped cavities as a function of Er-cavity length offset: a) the laser setup with common GSA, b) the laser setup with two independent GSAXPM placed in both cavities (the common branch without graphene layers). c) The central wavelengths of generated solitons versus the offset of Er-cavity length measured for the setup with common GSA, d) The RF spectrum of synchronized lasers measured with the resolution of 20 Hz.
