Abstract: The optical conductance of monolayer graphene is defined solely by the fine structure constant, α = (where e is the electron charge, is Dirac's constant and c is the speed of light). The absorbance has been predicted to be independent of frequency. In principle, the interband optical absorption in zero-gap graphene could be saturated readily under strong excitation due to Pauli blocking. Here, use of atomic layer graphene as saturable absorber in a mode-locked fiber laser for the generation of ultrashort soliton pulses (756 fs) at the telecommunication band is demonstrated. The modulation depth can be tuned in a wide range from 66.5% to 6.2% by varying the graphene thickness. These results suggest that ultrathin graphene films are potentially useful as optical elements in fiber lasers. Graphene as a laser mode locker can have many merits such as lower saturation intensity, ultrafast recovery time, tunable modulation depth, and wideband tunability.

Abstract: Graphene is at the center of a significant research effort Near-ballistic transport at room temperature and high mobility make it a potential material for nanoelectronics Its electronic and mechanical properties are also ideal for micro- and nanomechanical systems, thin-film transistors, and transparent and conductive composites and electrodes Here we exploit the optoelectronic properties of graphene to realize an ultrafast laser A graphene-polymer composite is fabricated using wet-chemistry techniques Pauli blocking following intense illumination results in saturable absorption, independent of wavelength This is used to passively mode-lock an erbium-doped fiber laser working at 1559 nm, with a 524 nm spectral bandwidth and approximately 460 fs pulse duration, paving the way to graphene-based photonics
