Abstract

We report near-infrared (IR) to mid-IR (up to 3.4 mu m wavelength) multimode waveguiding in deep buried channel waveguides fabricated inside rare-earth ion-doped ceramic YAG for the first time to our knowledge. Waveguide laser operation at around 2 mu m wavelength with multi-or single-transverse modes is also preliminarily demonstrated from these waveguides. (C) 2012 Optical Society of America
