Ion-implanted Nd:GGG channel waveguide laser
Optics Letters, 17, (1), . (doi:10.1364/OL.17.000052).
We report what is to our knowledge the first fabrication and laser operation of ion-implanted Nd:GGG channel waveguides. Diode-pumped operation has been achieved with absorbed power thresholds as low as ~2 mW and a slope efficiency of ~30% with respect to absorbed power.
