    • Development of a thulium (Tm:YAP) laser system for brain tissue ablation 

      Bilici, T.; Mutlu, S.; Kalaycioglu H.; Kurt, A.; Sennaroglu, A.; Gulsoy, M. (2011)
      In this study, a thulium (Tm:YAP) laser system was developed for brain surgery applications. As the Tm:YAP laser is a continuous-wave laser delivered via silica fibers, it would have great potential for stereotaxic ...
    • Femtosecond pulse generation from an extended cavity Cr4+: Forsterite laser using graphene on YAG 

      Baylam I.; Ozharar, S.; Natali Cizmeciyan, M.; Balcı, Osman; Pince, Erçağ; Kocabaş, Coşkun; Sennaroglu, A. (Optical Society of America, 2013)
      A room temperature, multipass-cavity, femtosecond Cr4+:forsterite laser was modelocked with a single-layer graphene saturable absorber on a YAG substrate. The resonator produced nearly transform-limited 92 fs pulses near ...

      Baylam, M. N.; Cizmeciyan, S.; Ozharar, S.; Polat, E. O.; Kocabas, C.; Sennaroglu, A. (Optical Society of America, 2014)
      We report, for the first time to our knowledge, the demonstration of a graphene supercapacitor as a voltage-controlled saturable absorber for femtosecond pulse generation from a solid-state laser. By applying only a few ...
    • Fluence of thulium laser system in skin ablation 

      Bilici, T.; Tabakoğlu, O.; Kalaycıoğlu, Hamit; Kurt, A.; Sennaroglu, A.; Gülsoy, M. (IEEE, 2010)
      Tm:YAP laser system at power levels up to 1.2 W at 1980 nm was established in both continuous-wave and modulated modes of operation. The fluence effect of the laser system for skin ablation was analyzed by histology analysis ...
    • Generation of Sub-20-fs Pulses From a Graphene Mode-Locked Laser 

      Canbaz, F.; Kakenov, N.; Kocabas, C.; Demirbas, U.; Sennaroglu, A. (OSA - The Optical Society, 2017)
      We demonstrate, what is to our knowledge, the shortest pulses directly generated to date from a solid-state laser, mode locked with a graphene saturable absorber (GSA). In the experiments, a low-threshold diode-pumped ...

      Canbaz F.; Kakenov, N.; Kocabas, C.; Demirbas, U.; Sennaroglu, A. (OSA - The Optical Society, 2015)
      We report, for the first time to our knowledge, a mode-locked femtosecond Cr:LiSAF laser initiated with a high-quality monolayer graphene saturable absorber (GSA), synthesized by chemical-vapor deposition. The tight-focusing ...

      Canbaz, F.; Kakenov, Nurbek; Kocabaş, Coşkun; Demirbaş, U.; Sennaroglu, A. (IEEE, 2015)
      The Cr:LiSAF gain medium, belonging to the class of Cr:colquiirite lasers, possesses a broad gain bandwidth suitable for the generation of femtosecond pulses near 850 nm [1]. Because the nonlinear refractive index of these ...
    • Graphene mode-locked femtosecond Alexandrite laser 

      Cihan, C.; Kocabas, C.; Demirbas U.; Sennaroglu, A. (OSA - The Optical Society, 2018)
      We report for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, graphene mode-locked operation of a femtosecond Alexandrite laser at 750 nm. A multipass-cavity configuration was employed to scale the output energy and to ...
    • Graphene mode-locked femtosecond Cr: LiSAF laser 

      Canbaz F.; Kakenov, N.; Kocabas, C.; Demirbas, U.; Sennaroglu, A. (Optical Society of America (OSA), 2015)
      We report the first demonstration of femtosecond pulse generation from a Cr:LiSAF laser mode-locked with a monolayer graphene saturable absorber. Nearly transform-limited 72-fs pulses were generated at 850 nm with only two ...
