Paper Abstract

A passively Q-switched distributed-Bragg-reflector laser made in glass integrated optics technology, and operating around 1030 nm, is designed, realized and investigated. The laser is formed by an ion-exchanged single mode waveguide realized in an Ytterbium doped phosphate glass. The Q-switching behavior is obtained by hybridizing a saturable absorber film on the waveguides. This allows the realization of a short and simple laser cavity having both pulsed and a narrow linewidth emission. Its experimental characterization leads to the observation of a stable repetition rate of 12.5 kHz and a stable pulse duration of 9.2 ns FWHM.
