Title: Saturable absorber based on silver nanoparticles for passively mode-locked lasers

A saturable absorber based on plane (tabular) stabilised silver nanocrystals, which is promising for picoseconds laser systems operating in the range 650–900 nm, is studied. This material has a plasmon decay time of about 2 ps, while its absorption at a pump intensity of 10 MW cm{sup -2} decreases by 1.6%, which is sufficient for using this crystal for passive mode locking.
