Paper Abstract

Silver ion exchange process is employed to make channel waveguides in neodymium and erbium doped phosphate and silicate glasses. In particular, we report on the first fabrication of ion exchanged waveguides in a new erbium doped phosphate glass. Stimulated emission is demonstrated in the fabricated waveguides.
