Abstract:Epitaxially grown, 2.4-μm-thin layers of KY(WO4)2:Gd3+, Lu3+, Yb3+, which exhibit a high refractive index contrast with respect to the undoped KY(WO4)2 substrate, have been microstructured by Ar beam milling, providing 1.4-μm-deep ridge channel waveguides of 2 to 7 μm width, and overgrown by an undoped KY(WO4)2 layer. Channel waveguide laser operation was achieved with a launched pump power threshold of only 5 mW, a slope efficiency of 62% versus launched pump power, and 76 mW output power.
