Abstract

We demonstrated a Q-switched fiber laser based on Tungsten Disulfide (WS2) saturable absorber. The WS2 nano-sheets were prepared by liquid phase exfoliation method and the saturable absorber was fabricated by spin-coating of few-layer WS2 nano-sheets on a side-polished fiber for pulsed operation of a fiber laser. By inserting the absorber into an Erbium-doped fiber laser cavity pumped by a 980 nm laser diode, a stable Q-switched laser operation was achieved with a tunable repetition rates from 82 kHz to 134 kHz depending on the applied pump power. The properties of the deposited WS2 film was examined using scanning electron microscopic (SEM) and atomic force microscope (AFM). Detailed optical properties of the laser output are also discussed.
