Study visit to the AGH University of Science and Technology
Jakub Bogusławski visited the Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics at AGH University of Science and Technology. The aim of this trip was to fabricate a saturable absorber based on antimony telluride on the surface of active Tm: KLuW waveguide. The saturable absorber will be used to build and study a pulsed laser working in a 2 µm spectral range, which is important for many biomedical applications. Layers of antimony telluride were sputtered on the surface of the waveguide using a pulsed magnetron sputtering technique. Simultaneously, antimony telluride was sputtered on glass and silica substrates as a reference and for further characterization (Raman spectroscopy, XRD, SEM and AFM microscopy, measurement of optical properties).
