Field, S.J., Hanna, D.C., Large, A.C., Shepherd, D.P., Tropper, A.C., Chartier, I., Ferrand, B. and Pelenc, D. (1992) Growth and low-threshold laser oscillation of an epitaxially grown Nd:YAG waveguide Optics Letters, 17, (11), pp. 810-812. (doi:10.1364/OL.17.000810).

Record type: Article


We report 1064-µm laser operation of an epitaxially grown Nd:YAG planar waveguide with thresholds as low as ~0.7 mW when high-reflectivity mirrors are used. The output is single mode and, when a 83% reflectivity output coupler is used. has a diode pumped slope efficiency of ~40% Output powers in excess of 60 mW have been obtained when pumping with a Rhodamine 6G dye laser.
