Abstract

We present the synchronization of two all-fiber mode-locked lasers, operating at 1.0μm and 1.54μm, coupled through the use of a shared single-wall carbon nanotube absorber. Both lasers operate in the soliton-regime, achieving a synchronized repetition rate of 13.08MHz. The broadband absorption range of the single-wall carbon nanotubes allows the stable mode-locking behavior at 1μm and 1.5μm. The nonlinear coupling effects between two energy states of the carbon nanotube absorber result in stable synchronized pulses for hours of operation, with a large cavity mismatch of 1400μm.
