Abstract
Waveguide lasers formed by ion exchange in rare-earth-doped glasses have emerged as an attractive new technology on the threshold of commercial insertion. These devices can be used as both laser oscillators and optical amplifiers. In this article, we review ion exchange and glass composition. We then discuss the performance of ion-exchanged waveguide lasers made in silicate and phosphate glasses.
