Ion-implanted Nd:MgO:LiNbO3 planar waveguide laser
Optics Letters, 16, (7), . (doi:10.1364/OL.16.000481).
Laser oscillation in an ion-implanted planar Nd:MgO:LiNbO3 waveguide is demonstrated for the first time to our knowledge. Details of the waveguide structure, spectroscopic properties, photorefractive effects. and laser performance are given. A simple calculation of the absorbed power threshold gives ~8mW, in fair agreement with the experimental value of ~17mW.
