An experimental comparison of linear and parabolic tapered waveguide lasers

Hettrick, S.J., Wang, J., Li, C., Wilkinson, James and Shepherd, D.P. (2003) An experimental comparison of linear and parabolic tapered waveguide lasers At ECIO 2003: European Conference on Integrated Optics. 02 - 04 Apr 2003. 4 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We compare the laser performance of linear and parabolic tapered waveguides in ion-exchanged Nd:glass, finding significant advantage for the linear guides, with demonstrated adiabatic expansion to widths of 250µm.
