Abstract

A neodymium-doped BK7 glass microsphere laser integrated with a planar ion-exchanged waveguide pumped at 0.8μm has been demonstrated. The pump radiation was launched by evanescent coupling from the waveguide, and the signal radiation was coupled out through the same waveguide, offering the potential for robustly assembled fully integrated active optical circuits. The dependence of the lasing spectra on pump power and wavelength were studied in detail to clarify the whispering-gallery-mode behavior at the pump and lasing wavelengths.
