Single-frequency and Mode-locked Er/Yb Co-doped Waveguide Lasers



Berton Callicoatt, John B. Schlager, Kevin L. Silverman, Robert K. Hickernell, Richard P. Mirin, Norman A. Sanford, Joseph S. Hayden, Samuel D. Conzone, Robert D. Simpson


We present results for single-frequency and mode-locked Er/Yb co-doped waveguide lasers. The single-frequency DBR waveguide lasers have output power in excess of 80 mW with laser linewidth of 17 kHz. The passively mode-locked waveguide lasers produce picosecond pulses with 20 mW of average power and repetition rates up to 500 MHz.
