Field, S.J., Hanna, D.C., Shepherd, D.P., Tropper, A.C., Chandler, P.J., Townsend, P.D. and Zhang, L. (1991) Ion-implanted Nd:MgO:LiNbO3 planar waveguide laser Optics Letters, 16, (7), pp. 481-483. (doi:10.1364/OL.16.000481).

Record type: Article


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.
