Paper Abstract

A whole family of waveguide lasers (fixed frequency, acousto- optically tunable, modelocked, Q-switched) has been developed in Er-diffusion doped LiNbO3 substrates. By periodically poling the Ti:Er:LiNbO3 waveguides quasi-phase-matched nonlinear interactions can be achieved in the same structure. In this way the development of self-frequency doubling lasers, of laser/difference frequency generator combinations, and of optical parametric oscillators with intracavity pump laser becomes possible.
