    Abstract

    This work presents for the first time a study of a fibre laser mode-locked due to a carbon-nanotube-based saturable absorber whose parameters could be controlled by a joined action of optical radiation and electric field. Combination of different types of control (optical and electrical) allowed variation of dynamics of the saturable absorber parameters and greater choice of pulsed generation regimes.We demonstrated the possibility of live switching of laser generation between various pulsed regimes through combined electro-optical action on the polymer-free carbon nanotube film.
