Abstract

High reflectivity Bragg gratings have been written by ArF excimer laser through a phase mask into Schott IOG-1 hybrid phosphate glass. After grating exposure, a waveguide was fabricated by silver-sodium ion-exchange. Reflectivities around 80 % at a wavelength of ~ 1535 nm were measured from the waveguide for both quasi-TE and -TM polarizations. Waveguide laser operation with the photowritten waveguide grating as another mirror was demonstrated. Output power of 3.8 mW with a pump power of 199 mW could be extracted from the laser configuration.

Schematic of the set-up for measuring the slope efficiency and the laser spectrum. A fiber-pigtailed pump laser is connected to a fiber with a dielectric mirror on the output end, which is butt-coupled to a waveguide with a grating. The UV-written Bragg grating acts as the other cavity mirror as well as an output coupler. The laser output power is measured by a fiber-coupled detector and a power meter. The output spectrum is measured using an optical spectrum analyzer (OSA). The output fiber can be coupled either to the power meter or to the OSA. The black blocks in the figure represent fiber connectors.
