The first laser operation of an Yb:YAG waveguide is reported. Room temperature, continuous wave operation was achieved at a threshold of 30 mW. Projected thresholds of a few milliwatts for a channel waveguide indicate that for quasi-three level lasers. a waveguide configuration, even if lossy, can be highly beneficial.
