Neodymium-doped tantalum pentoxide waveguide lasers
The fabrication, spectroscopic properties, and laser performance of Nd3+-doped Ta2O5 channel waveguide lasers are described. Lasing is obtained at both 1.066µm and 1.375µm with threshold pump powers as low as 2.7mW. The rib waveguides are reactive-ion-etched into Nd:Ta2O5 layers formed by reactive magnetron sputtering. These high-index, low-loss, rare-earth-doped waveguides are fabricated on silicon substrates and offer the potential for integration with photonic crystal structures for compact optical circuits.

Abstract

The fabrication, spectroscopic properties, and laser performance of Nd3+-doped Ta2O5 channel waveguide lasers are described. Lasing is obtained at both 1.066µm and 1.375µm with threshold pump powers as low as 2.7mW. The rib waveguides are reactive-ion-etched into Nd:Ta2O5 layers formed by reactive magnetron sputtering. These high-index, low-loss, rare-earth-doped waveguides are fabricated on silicon substrates and offer the potential for integration with photonic crystal structures for compact optical circuits.
