Paper Abstract

Thin films of molecular J-aggregates of polymethyn dyes were obtained. Linear and nonlinear optical properties of the films were investigated. These thin films of J-aggregates were successfully used as saturable absorbers for passive mode-locking in YAG:Nd3+ laser for the first time. The reproduced generation of ultra short pulses with a duration of ~13 ps was obtained for two types of dyes forming the J-aggregates.
