A diode-pumped channel waveguide laser fabricated in Nd: phosphate glass

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We report on the laser performance of a Nd:phosphate glass (Nd:IOG-1) channel waveguide laser fabricated by electric field assisted Ag{sup +} diffusion. Lasing was achieved in two different size channels, 29 x 9 {micro}m{sup 2} and 50 x 9 {micro}m{sup 2}, on a sample of length 8 mm. Slope efficiencies of {approximately} 15% with respect to incident pump power were measured. Losses in the 29 um wide channel were measured to be in the range 0.2--1.1 dB/cm and in the 50 mm channel, 0.2--0.4 dB/cm. The laser spectrum, centered about the emission peak of 1053 nm, was multimode and randomly ... continued below
