1.9µm operation of a Tm:Lead germanate glass waveguide laser

Shepherd, D.P., Brinck, D.J., Wang, J., Tropper, A.C., Hanna, D.C., Kakarantzas, G. and Townsend, P.D. (1994) 1.9µm operation of a Tm:Lead germanate glass waveguide laser Optics Letters, 19, (13), pp. 954-956. (doi:10.1364/OL.19.000954).

Record type: Article


We report what we believe to be the first planar-technology waveguide laser in the 2-µm region. Laser operation of the 3H4 to 3H6 transition of Tm3+ ions in a lead germanate glass host has been observed in an ion-implanted planar waveguide.
