This review takes a look at the historical development of the dielectric planar waveguide laser leading to key state-of-the-art technologies that fall within this broad subject area. Discussed herein are many of the advantages offered by the waveguide geometry such as high optical gain, and thus, low threshold-power requirements, suitability for quasi-three-level laser transitions, integration with functional devices on single substrates, guided spatial-mode control, and its considerable… CONTINUE READING
