- Q-switched fiber ring lasers operated by single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) hosted in SiO2 matrix
are demonstrated by highlighting their stable operation and dramatically improved thermal damage
threshold. Employing aerosol deposition process, SWNTs are incorporated into the ceramic host at
room-temperature without solubility limitation. After experiencing the intracavity optical power higher
than 15.3 dBm, the hosted SWNTs survive to provide Q-switching operation. The continuous repetition
rate tuning is achieved in the range of 11.1–32.2 kHz with the pulse-duration of 7.1–15.8 μs at 1558.5 nm.
