Abstract

Composite crystals are of great interest for side-pumped thin-disc laser applications. We present a novel technique for fabricating hybrid films for such applications based upon multi-beam, multi-target Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD). A two-garnet example was grown as proof of concept, representing the first known demonstration of controlled, continuous horizontal grading in a PLD-grown crystal. The results of shadow masking experiments and the suitability of such a method for growth of the desired structures are also discussed.
