Abstract

The performance of dielectric planar-waveguide lasers has had a chequered history, often overshadowed by other laser architectures, and/or application oriented fabrication research. In this presentation I will review some of the interesting highlights for this unique laser geometry, and attempt to give a balanced view as to their relative advantage and disadvantages with respect to other laser architectures. In the process I will discuss several of the research firsts demonstrated in the ORC at Southampton University, highlighting the key parameters that allowed them to be attained. The talk will culminate with a discussion of a recent world-record 100W result for a 946nm Nd:YAG planar waveguide laser, and where to next for power-scaling this challenging laser system
