The dependence of dynamic range and pulsewidth of mode-locked laser (MLL) with different number of graphene saturable absorber is investigated and compared. The results showed that the dynamic range of the MLL decreased and the pulsewidth became shorter as the number of graphene layer increased. This study provides practical conclusion that the lower layer stacking is preferable to use as saturable absorber for better tunability in pulsewidth, whereas the higher layer stacking is preferable to… CONTINUE READING
