Abstract

Hereby we present the results of investigations of nonlinear optical properties of single-walled carbon nanotube (CNT) thin-film saturable absorbers without binding polymers. Developed CNT-based polymer-free saturable absorbers exhibit high third-order nonlinear susceptibility: X(3)~10-8esu, low absorption saturation intensity: IS~30 mW/cm2, and high photostability. Using CNT-based polymer-free saturable absorbers for passive Q-switching mode of Nd:YAG laser, 25 ns laser pulses have been obtained.
