This work reports continuous laser oscillation at λ=1064.3 nm at room temperature in Nd:YAG planar waveguides fabricated by two different techniques: proton implantation with a multi-implant of energies around 1 MeV and carbon implantation with a single-implant at an energy of 7 MeV. Threshold powers of 11 and 22 mW and slope efficiencies of 7% and 9% were achieved in the proton- and carbon-implanted guides, respectively. The laser outputs show a very high stability operating in cw regime at room temperature. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
