    • All-fiber Yb-doped laser mode-locked by nanotubes 

      Zhang, U.Z.; Popa, D.; Sun, Z.; Hasan, T.; Ferrari, A.C.; Ilday F.O. (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
      Single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and graphene have emerged as promising saturable absorbers (SAs), due to their broad operation bandwidth and fast recovery times [1-3]. However, Yb-doped fiber lasers mode-locked using ...
    • Femtosecond pulse generation from a Ti3+: Sapphire laser near 800 nm with voltage reconfigurable graphene saturable absorbers 

      Baylam I.; Ozharar S.; Kakenov N.; Kocabas C.; Sennaroglu A. (OSA - The Optical Society, 2017)
      We experimentally show that a voltage-controlled graphene-gold supercapacitor saturable absorber (VCG-gold-SA) can be operated as a fast saturable absorber with adjustable linear absorption at wavelengths as low as 795 nm. ...
    • Femtosecond pulse generation from an extended cavity Cr4+: Forsterite laser using graphene on YAG 

      Baylam I.; Ozharar, S.; Natali Cizmeciyan, M.; Balci O.; Pince, E.; Kocabas, C.; Sennaroglu, A. (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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Graphene mode-locked Cr:LiSAF laser at 850 nm 

      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 ...
    • 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 ...
