Description/Abstract

The emission aperture of high-average-power diode-bars is inherently compatible with the geometry of thin-film waveguides. This, together with the power-handling capability of thin slabs, has lead to the possibility of very compact, high-power planar waveguide lasers. Here we report on novel waveguide structures and coupling techniques used to realise such devices in both Nd3+ and Yb3+ doped YAG.
