Y-branch waveguide glass laser and amplifier.

Abstract

A Y-branch channel waveguide laser operating near 1057 nm was fabricated by electric-field-assisted ion exchange in Nd-doped silicate glass. The overall length was 24 mm. Optical pumping was performed with a cw Ti:sapphire laser. Mirrors were bonded to the polished waveguide facets. The slope efficiency was 5.1% when a 4%-transmitting output coupler was… (More)
