We report on a demonstration of a planar waveguide laser configuration for single-mode operation around 1550 nm using cost-effective multimode diode pumping. The laser was fabricated by Ag film ion exchange in a hybrid phosphate glass which has active and passive regions monolithically integrated in a single glass chip. Power of 54 mW at 1538 nm was measured from the single-mode output waveguide.

    We propose an electrically-pumped hybrid plasmonic laser through the integration of a semiconductor quantum well laser with a thin metal film. Due to the coupling between the TM waveguide mode in the III-V active layer and the LRSPP mode around the metal thin film, light can be confined in both...
