Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We report self-similar and stretched -pulse operations in an all-fiber erbium-doped laser using carbon nanotube saturable absorber, for the first time. Pulses as short as 115fs are achieved in the stretched-pulse regime.
