Paper Abstract

Optical properties of Er:YAG and Er:YAP materials and layers were studied. Layers were grown by KrF laser ablation (248 nm, 20 ns) from Er-doped targets. Composition, crystallinity, luminescence and results of spectroscopic ellipsometry are discussed. Films were mostly amorphous for substrate temperatures up to ~ 975 °C. Luminescence corresponding to Er+3 ions was observed on all samples. Waveguiding properties were estimated.
