Abstract

A compact high power planar waveguide laser end-pumped by a diode-bar is reported. The waveguide was fabricated by liquid-phase epitaxy and had an 80µm thick, 1.5at% Nd:Y3Al5O12 core on a Y3Al5O12 substrate. A maximum output power of 6.2W was obtained at 1.064µm, when the device was pumped with a 20W diode-bar operating near 807nm, giving an overall optical-to-optical conversion efficiency of 31%. The total device length was 5cm.
