We report a new method for obtaining a stable single-frequency Yb-doped fiber laser by introducing a graphene film into a fiber loop mirror combined with a simple linear cavity. The graphene film acts as a saturable absorber so as to form a dynamic absorbing grating in the 3 dB fiber loop. This grating is like a narrow-band filter for discriminating and selecting longitudinal modes. Moreover, we use a polarization controller in the linear resonator to suppress the spatial hole burning effect. The maximum output power is 16mW at 1 064 nm with a pump power of 110 mW at 975 nm, the slope efficiency is 15%, and the SNR is about 60 dB. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of a 1 064 nm single-frequency laser based on a linear cavity with a graphene-loop mirror filter. © 2015 IOP Publishing Ltd.

We demonstrate a passively Q-switched Tm3+-doped all-fiber laser (TDFL) at around 2 μm with a graphene-based saturable absorber (SA). The graphene is prepared by the reduction of graphite oxide (GO), deposited on the fiber core and inserted into a linear cavity as the passive Q-switch. A 793 nm laser diode (LD) is used as the pump source, with a maximum power of 200 mW. A maximum output power of ∼33.5 mW is obtained at a pump power of 200 mW, with a high optical conversion efficiency of about 17%. The corresponding single pulse energy is 260 nJ and the repetition rate is 128 kHz. © 2013 Astro Ltd.

In this Letter, a single-frequency fiber laser using a molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) thin film as a saturable absorber is demonstrated. We use a short length of highly Yb-doped fiber as the gain medium and a fiber ferrule with MoS2 film adhered to it by index matching gel (IMG) that acts as the saturable absorber. The saturable absorber can be used to discriminate and select the single longitudinal modes. The maximum output power of the single-frequency fiber laser is 15.3 mW at a pump power of 130 mW and the slope efficiency is 15.3%. The optical signal-to-noise ratio and the laser linewidths are ~60 dB and 5.89 kHz, respectively. © 2016 Chinese Optics Letters.

A Laser diode (LD) side-pumped ceramic Nd:YAG laser was developed to achieve dual wavelength output at 532 nm and 660 nm, based on LiB 3O5 (LBO) intracavity frequency doubling with the method of β-BaB2O4 (BBO) electro-optical Q-switching (EO Q-switching). In the experiment, a T-shaped cavity is designed for laser oscillate to reach the maximum output power of 8.32 W at 532 nm and 4.2 W at 660 nm simultaneously; and also, the pulse widths could reach to 88.6 ns at 532 nm and 96 ns at 660 nm with the repetition rate of 10 kHz. The beam quality factors (M2) could be measured as Mx2=4.36, My2=4.78 at 532 nm and Mx2=5.46, My2=5.83 at 660 nm. Both the power instabilities of the two output wavelengths are less than 2% in 10 h measured at every 1 h. All of the EO Q-switching technique, oscillation cavity design and laser gain media, used in this work, illustrate a valid way to develop a dual-wavelength laser with high output peak power. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

By using a loop mirror filter, a novel wavelength-tunable single-frequency ytterbium-doped fiber laser is developed to select single longitudinal modes in a linear cavity. The output wavelength could be tuned 2.4nm intervals range from 1063.3 to 1065.7nm with the temperature change of the fiber Bragg grating. The maximum output power could reach 32mW while the pump power increases to 120mW. The corresponding optical-to-optical conversion efficiency is 26.7% and the slope efficiency is 33.9%, respectively. The output power fluctuation is below 2%, and its highest signal-to-noise ratio is 60 dB. © 2015 Chinese Physical Society and IOP Publishing Ltd.

355 nm UV laser was obtained with a pulse width of less than 5 ns and a peak power at megawatt level by adopting the 808 nm pulse laser diode (LD) side-pumped ceramic Nd:YAG and BBO crystal electro-optical Q-switched.

A high-slope-efficiency single-frequency (SF) ytterbium-doped fiber laser, based on a Sagnac loop mirror filter (LMF), was demonstrated. It combined a simple linear cavity with a Sagnac LMF that acted as a narrow-bandwidth filter to select the longitudinal modes. And we introduced a polarization controller to restrain the spatial hole burning effect in the linear cavity. The system could operate at a stable SF oscillating at 1064 nm with the obtained maximum output power of 32 mW. The slope efficiency was found to be primarily dependent on the reflectivity of the fiber Bragg grating. The slope efficiency of multi-longitudinal modes was higher than 45%, and the highest slope efficiency of the single longitudinal mode we achieved was 33.8%. The power stability and spectrum stability were <2% and <0.1%, respectively, and the signal-to-noise ratio measured was around 60 dB. © 2013 Optical Society of America.
