Diode-pumped, ion-exchanged Er/Yb waveguide laser at 1.5µm in phosphorus-free silicate glass

Román, J.E., Hempstead, M., Brocklesby, W.S., Nouh, S., Wilkinson, J.S., Camy, P., Lerminiaux, C. and Béguin, A. (1995) Diode-pumped, ion-exchanged Er/Yb waveguide laser at 1.5µm in phosphorus-free silicate glass At 7th European Conference on Integrated Optics (ECIO '95), Netherlands. 03 - 06 Apr 1995.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We demonstrate the first diode-pumped, planar ErNb waveguide laser. The device was fabricated by thallium-exchange in a phosphorus-free silicate glass. Lasing was achieved with a low threshold of 15 mW, indicating the absence of the severe backtransfer effects previously reported in Er/Yb bulk laser silicate glasses.
