Abstract

Organic materials are attracting attention for their potential applications due to their large third-order optical nonlinearities. A passive fiber Q-switching laser has been demonstrated based on an erbium/ytterbium codoped amplifier and an acetone solution saturable absorber (SA). When pump power was increased from 120 to 155 mW, the repetition rate increased from 5.68 to 16.67 kHz, while the pulse width decreased from 24.1 to 15  μs. These results indicate that acetone solution can be used as an effective SA for pulsed lasers.
