Rare-Earth-Ion-Doped Channel Waveguide Lasers on Silicon
2015 (English)In: IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics, ISSN 1077-260X, E-ISSN 1558-4542, Vol. 21, no 1, 1602512- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This paper reviews the recent developments in rare-earth-ion-doped channel waveguide lasers. Optical gain in rare-earth-ion-doped waveguides has been increased by two orders of magnitude to similar to 1000 dB/cm and waveguide lasers with extremely high slope efficiencies and output powers exceeding the Watt level have been demonstrated. Of particular interest in integrated optics is the recent integration of rare-earth-ion-doped channel waveguide lasers in amorphous materials directly deposited on a silicon substrate. Remarkable performance with respect to slope efficiency, output power, and laser linewidth has been achieved.
