An experimental comparison of linear and parabolic tapered waveguide lasers
S.J.Hettrick, J.Wang, C.Li, J.S.Wilkinson and D.P.Shepherd
We compare the laser performance of linear and parabolic tapered waveguides in ion-exchanged Nd:glass, finding significant advantage for the linear guides, with demonstrated adiabatic expansion to widths of 250μm.
