Abstract

Transient differential absorption spectra of solgel glasses that contain copper selenide nanoparticles (NP’s) have been studied with a picosecond pump–probe technique. Oxidation of copper selenide NP’s results in the appearance of an additional absorption band peaked at ∼1 μm, which can be transiently bleached under laser excitation. Excited-state absorption related to mid-gap surface trap states was observed. The absorption recovery time was found to be ∼300 ps. The intensity-dependent transmission of oxidized copper selenide NP’s in solgel glass at 1.08 μm has been measured. Permanent laser-induced absorption changes in the glasses were studied with nanosecond pulses as a function of laser exposure. Passive <i>Q</i> switching of 1.06-μm Nd<sup>3+</sup>:Y<sub>3</sub>Al<sub>5</sub>O<sub>12</sub>, 1.34-μm Nd<sup>3+</sup>:YAlO<sub>3</sub>, and 1.54-μm Er<sup>3+</sup>: glass lasers has been realized with the glasses containing copper selenide NP’s used as saturable absorbers. <i>Q</i>-switched pulses with 100-ns (1.06 μm), 90-ns (1.34 μm), and 60-ns (1.54 μm) pulse widths were obtained.
