We report the measurement of the damage threshold of optical waveguides made by ion exchange in glass subjected to high peak power pulses from a mode-locked/Q-switched YAG laser operating at a wavelength of 1.06 mm. We found that waveguides made from a potassium-sodium exchange could tolerate at least ten times more guided peak power than silver-sodium exchanged guides.
