Graphene Q-switched, tunable fiber laser
Appl. Phys. Lett. 98, 073106 (2011)

We demonstrate a wideband-tunable Q-switched fiber laser exploiting a graphene saturable absorber. We get ~2us pulses, tunable between 1522 and 1555nm with up to~40nJ energy. This is a simple and low-cost light source for metrology, environmental sensing and biomedical diagnostics.
