Abstract

The optical waveguides in neodymium-doped gadolinium gallium garnet crystal are fabricated, to our knowledge for the first time, by either H + or C 3 + ion implantation. The reconstructed refractive index profiles of the planar waveguides have shown, in both cases, the typical enhanced well + barrier distributions. The two-dimensional modal profiles of the channel waveguides, obtained by using an end-face coupling arrangement, are in good agreement with the simulated modal distributions. After moderate thermal annealing at 200 ° C , the propagation loss of the H- and C-ion-implanted channel waveguides are reduced down to 1.5 and 1.6 dB / cm , respectively, which exhibits acceptable guiding qualities for applications on potential integrated laser generation.
