We present a widely adjustable high energy square pulse laser operating in DSR in a passively mode-locked F8L using dual Er:Yb co-doped double clad amplifiers. By manually controlling the power of each amplifier, the pulse width can be varied in a range of 360 ns without generating multi-pulsing instabilities. To ensure that DSR would dominate the modelocking mechanism, we use a 1.5 km standard single-mode fiber in the cavity. At a maximum pumping power, the laser generated square pulses with 416 ns duration and an average output power of about 1.33 W with a repetition frequency of 133 KHz corresponding to a record pulse energy of 10 μJ.
In this communication, we demonstrate a passive mode-locked Er:Yb co-doped double-clad fiber laser using a tapered microfiber topological insulator (Bi2Se3) saturable absorber (TISA). The topological insulator is drop-casted onto the tapered fiber and optically deposited by optical tweezer effect. We use a ring laser setup including the fabricated TISA. By carefully optimizing the cavity losses and output coupling ratio, the mode-locked laser can operate in L-band with a high average output power. At a maximum pump power of 5 W, we obtain the 91st harmonic mode-locking of soliton bunches with a 3dB spectral bandwidth of 1.06nm, a repetition rate of 640.9 MHz and an average output power of 308mW. As far as we know, this is the highest output power yet reported of a mode-locked fiber laser operating with a TISA.
