Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We report the characterization of Cr:ZnSe channel waveguide lasers with Watt-level outputs. Waveguides are fabricated via ultrafast laser inscription in polycrystalline Cr:ZnSe samples. The effect of waveguide structure and fabrication on laser performance is investigated.
