Abstract

We report here a comparative film growth study of several different garnet crystal compositions intended for optical waveguide applications. Films of Nd,Cr:Gd transitions is not the same as for bulk crystal, indicating the possibility for tuning the absorption properties of films to a desired pump wavelength. This growth study has shown that several different garnet crystals can be grown under the same deposition conditions and indicates the potential of PLD to be used as a fabrication technique for advanced multilayer planar waveguide laser structures.
