Abstract

This work for the first time reports experimental results on Er fibre laser mode-locked with saturable absorbers based on single-walled matrix-less carbon nanotube films fabricated by aerosol method. Nearly transform-limited output pulses had duration of 1.7 ps and average power of 0.5 mW. Measured high-contrast RF output spectra (noise suppression over 70 dB in 1-GHz band) confirm high quality of achieved mode locking. Discussed are details of the aerosol method of matrix-less carbon nanotube film fabrication and parameters of studied mode-locked fibre laser. Application of matrixless carbon nanotube films for mode locking and Q-switching of fibre and other laser types are analysed.
