We report a pulsed waveguide laser working at 1944 nm, mode-locked with a saturable absorber consisting of a graphene film deposited on an output coupler mirror. The waveguide is created into a ceramic Thulium-doped Yttrium Aluminium Garnet by ultrafast laser inscription. Q-switched mode-locking is achieved, with 6.5 mW average output power and ∼7.8 GHz pulse rate. This is a convenient, compact, high repetition rate laser for various applications, such as medical diagnostics and spectroscopy.

Abstract

We report a pulsed waveguide laser working at 1944 nm, mode-locked with a saturable absorber consisting of a graphene film deposited on an output coupler mirror. The waveguide is created into a ceramic Thulium-doped Yttrium Aluminium Garnet by ultrafast laser inscription. Q-switched mode-locking is achieved, with 6.5 mW average output power and ∼7.8 GHz pulse rate. This is a convenient, compact, high repetition rate laser for various applications, such as medical diagnostics and spectroscopy.
