All-fiber polarization locked vector soliton laser using carbon nanotubes


We report an all-fiber mode-locked erbium-doped fiber laser (EDFL) employing carbon nanotube (CNT) polymer composite film. By using only standard telecom grade components, without any complex polarization control elements in the laser cavity, we have demonstrated polarization locked vector solitons generation with duration of ~583fs , average power of ~3 mW (pulse energy of 118pJ ) at the repetition rate of ~25.7 MHz.
