Paper Abstract

Electron-beam lithography techniques allow realizing channel waveguides based on laser-active color centers in lithium fluoride (LiF) emitting in the visible. Amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) of red light from F2 defects has been observed in these confining structures: the appreciable values of the gain coefficient, several cm-1, with an exciting power density of few mW/cm2, makes LiF a good candidate for the realization of active integrated optical devices.
