In this study, we successfully generated the large bandwidth of supercontinuum spectra through hollow fibers filled with DNA. Also, by observing that spectra bandwidth was the widest in the order of the hollow core fiber filled with DNA modified by copper ion, the hollow core fiber with only DNA, and the bulk hollow core fiber, we demonstrated that DNA material modified with copper ions can further enhance the spectral bandwidth of supercontinuum. As a result, we anticipate that the SCG as a broadband light source can be used in analytical methods to demonstrate a wide range of biological and environmental questions.
Mode-locking an optically pumped semiconductor disk laser has been demonstrated using low-loss saturable absorption containing a mixture of single-walled carbon nanotubes in PMM polymer. The modulator was fabricated by a simple spin-coating technique on fused silica substrate and was operating in transmission. Stable passive fundamental modelocking was obtained at a repetition rate of 613 MHz with a pulse length of 1.23 ps. The mode-locked semiconductor disk laser in a compact geometry delivered a maximum average output power of 136 mW at 1074 nm.
