Abstract

Fabrication, characterization and laser performance of a Watt level ytterbium-doped yttria waveguide laser is presented. The waveguide was grown onto a YAG substrate by pulsed laser deposition and features a 6 µm thick ytterbium-doped yttria layer sandwiched between two 3 µm undoped yttria layers. The laser deposited film was characterized by X-ray diffraction, showing a high degree of crystallinity and analyzed spectroscopically, showing performance indistinguishable from previously reported bulk material. When pumped with 8.5 W from a broad area diode laser the waveguide laser produces 1.2 W of output at 1030 nm.
