Description/Abstract

We report 1064-µm laser operation of an epitaxially grown Nd:YAG planar waveguide with thresholds as low as ~0.7 mW when high-reflectivity mirrors are used. The output is single mode and, when a 83% reflectivity output coupler is used. has a diode pumped slope efficiency of ~40% Output powers in excess of 60 mW have been obtained when pumping with a Rhodamine 6G dye laser.
