Abstract

High-quality monoclinic K Y ( W O 4 ) 2 optical waveguides were grown by liquid-phase epitaxy, and laser operation of an Yb-doped K Y ( W O 4 ) 2 waveguide was demonstrated for the first time to our knowledge. Continuous-wave laser emission near 1 μ m was achieved with both surface and buried planar waveguides. An output power of 290 mW was obtained in the fundamental mode and the slope efficiency was above 80%.
