Abstract

In this work the fabrication and characterization of (Er3+,Yb3+) doped K(Y,Gd,Lu)W waveguides are presented. The KYW substrate is obtained by the Top-Seeded Solution Growth technique, and the active guiding layer is grown by Liquid Phase Epitaxy. While this process gives rise to planar waveguides, an ion milling structuring technique has been additionally used to provide lateral confinement to fabricate channel waveguides. The waveguide characterization includes refractive index measurements of the substrate and core regions, geometry of the ridge waveguides, and spectroscopy of the active ions around 1.55 µm. - BPM has been used to obtain the modal intensity profiles to estimate the optical confinement of the guided modes.
