Abstract

We have recently reported the use of ion-implantation to form planar waveguide lasers in Nd:YAG crystals. Here, for the first time, we report diode pumped operation using a 500 mW diode array. We also describe the use of ion implantation to form planar waveguide lasers in Nd:YAP and Nd:MgO:LiNbO3
