Abstract

We report a new 1.5 mum femtosecond fiber soliton laser incorporating a polymer saturable absorber that consists of polycarbonate (PC) with carbon nanotubes (CNTs). We installed the polymer in a fiber laser with a cavity length of 5.1 m, in which an erbium-doped fiber was used as the gain medium. Stable passive mode-locking was achieved for a pump power of 303 mW at 39 MHz, and a pulse width of 115 fs with an average output power of 3.4 mW was obtained.
