Abstract: Low threshold L-band mode-locked ultrafast fiber laser assisted by microfiber-based single wall carbon nanotube saturable absorber ABSTRCTWe demonstrate a passively mode-locked erbium-doped fiber laser in L-band wavelength region with low mode-locking threshold employing a 1425 nm pump wavelength. The mode-locking regime is generated by microfiber-based saturable absorber using carbon nanotube-polymer composite in a ring cavity. This carbon nanotube saturable absorber shows saturation intensity of 9 MW/cm². In…
