Artificial saturable absorbers for ultrafast fibre lasers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A paper is presented of artificial saturable absorbers as applied in fibre lasers. Shown are the advantages and drawbacks of this saturable absorber type in comparison with material-based natural counterparts. The prospects of further development of components for passive (or self) mode locking in fibre-optical technology are discussed. Analysis demonstrates that artificial absorbers relying on comparatively short optical fibres hold higher potential and may become a real alternative to natural absorbers.
