Abstract

We present a 1.07 μn all-fiber femtosecond soliton laser employing a film-type saturable absorber with a P3HT (poly-3hexylthiophene) incorporated SWNT coated on polyimide film. We optimized the laser cavity as a dispersion-managed soliton laser with photonic crystal fiber (PCF) as an anomalous dispersion fiber at 1.07 μn. As a result, a 131 fs, 33 MHz pulse was successfully generated with a simple laser configuration.
