Abstract

We report on a mode-locked Tm,Ho:CLNGG laser emitting in the 2 µm spectral range using single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) as a saturable absorber (SA). Pulses with duration of 98 fs are generated at 99.28 MHz repetition rate with an average output power of 123 mW, yielding a pulse energy of 1.24 nJ. Using a 0.5% output coupling, pulses as short as 67 fs, i.e., 10 optical cycles, are produced after extracavity compression with a 3-mm-thick ZnS plate.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Scheme of the tunable and mode-locked Tm,Ho:CLNGG laser. (L, lens; M: mirrors, CM, chirped mirrors; LF, Lyot filter; OC, output coupler).
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 CW input-output performance (a) and wavelength tunability (b) of the Tm,Ho:CLNGG laser. η is the slope efficiency. The green line in (b) is atmospheric transmittance at normal conditions for a path length of 3 m (HITRAN database, USA model, high latitude, summer, H = 0).
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a), (c) Optical spectra and (b), (d) the corresponding noncollinear autocorrelation traces of the mode-locked Tm,Ho:CLNGG laser for OC transmission of TOC = 3% and 0.5%, respectively. The blue line in (a) is the calculated total intracavity GDD. In (c) the dashed line is the sech2 fit of the optical spectrum and the blue line is the reflectivity of the 0.5% OC.
