Abstract
We demonstrate an erbium-doped fiber laser passively mode-locked by few layers of graphene prepared by the mechanical exfoliation of the high oriented pyrolytic graphite through the Scotch-tape method. This all-fiber ring cavity delivered a pulse train with a repetition rate of 1.646 MHz and pulse duration of 1.656 ps. By continuously adjusting the laser cavity parameters, one can observe various soliton patterns, such as ordered-, chaotic-, bunched-, and harmonic-multisoliton state. This evidenced that a mode-locked fiber laser based on graphene saturable absorber indeed provided a well-controlled nonlinear optics platform for soliton dynamics study.
