Abstract

We report the fabrication and visible laser operation of Pr,Mg:SrAl12O19 waveguides. Waveguiding structures were created by focusing the radiation of a femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser into bulk material. Guiding losses were determined to be as low as 0.12dBcm1 at 632.8 nm. By employing a frequency-doubled optically pumped semiconductor laser, waveguide laser operation was realized at wavelengths of 525.3, 644.0, and 724.9 nm with output powers as high as 36, 1065, and 504 mW, respectively. To the best of our knowledge this is the first demonstration of green laser operation in a Pr3+-doped crystalline waveguide laser.
