Abstract
The uniform-quality, large-area, monolayer graphene saturable absorber (SA) with sandwich structure was fabricated, tested, and successfully applied for the generation of diode-pumped Yb:Y2SiO5 mode-locked laser. Without extra negative dispersion elements, the shortest pulse with duration of ∼883 fs was obtained at 1042.6 nm with an output power of ∼1  W. These promising experimental results suggested that the low-cost, high-quality graphene SA could potentially be employed in practical, high-power, ultrafast mode-locking laser systems.
