We report on femtosecond laser writing of channel waveguides in ion doped YAG ceramics by multiple inscriptions of damage filaments. Waveguiding between filaments was found to resist annealing temperatures as high as . Microluminescence imaging experiments have been carried out to elucidate the potential application of the obtained waveguides as integrated laser sources as well as to elucidate the waveguiding mechanisms.
