Abstract

We report mode locking in a Ti:sapphire (Ti:Sa) laser at the wavelength of 810nm using a polymer film with single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) applied as a saturable absorber. Pulses with 600fs duration and 0.4nJ energy were generated from the Ti:Sa laser with polymer-SWNT composite film for cw passive mode locking.
