Paper Abstract

Properties and data of materials for creation of planar waveguide lasers and properties of suitable substrates are summarized. Parameters of published lasers are overviewed. Parameters of active and passive planar waveguides created by method of pulsed laser deposition are described. Results of our experiments of laser deposition of thin Ti:sapphire layers on quartz substrates are presented. Up to 4 waveguiding modes in created layers were observed and attenuation of 6.8 dB/cm was measured.
