Record type: Article


We report the first laser operation of an ion-implanted Nd:GGG planar waveguide laser at 1.062µm. Diode array and dye-laser pumping is described with threshold absorbed powers as low as 8mW. Slope efficiencies of 30% with respect to absorbed power have been observed with output powers of up to 40mW.
