Femtosecond Laser Written Nd:YAG Channel Waveguide Laser with a PLD grown Cr4+:YAG Thin Film Absorber

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


The Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) technique has several advantages such as the possibility to produce thin films of any compound with a stoichiometric material transfer from the target to the substrate. Also the high energy of the ablated material is a benefit, leading to crystalline film growth due to the high mobility of the atoms on the substrate surface. In combination with a recently demonstrated efficient Nd:YAG waveguide laser, the PLD technique is suitable for producing passively Q-switched waveguide lasers by depositing thin films of highly doped Cr4+:YAG on one endface of the waveguide [1-2].
