A lidar technique employing temporally stretched, frequency chirped pulses from a 20 MHz mode locked laser is presented. Sub-millimeter resolution at a target range of 10.1 km (in fiber) is observed. A pulse tagging scheme based on phase modulation is demonstrated for range resolved measurements. A carrier to noise ratio of 30 dB is observed at an… (More)
For the first time to our knowledge, we employed a graphene supercapacitor as a voltage controlled saturable absorber at bias voltages of 0.5-1V to generate 84-fs pulses from a solid-state laser near 1255 nm.
