Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


A novel Yb:SiO2 fiber-coupled laser on a silicon chip was fabricated using a solution-gel process. We report a record-low pump threshold of 2 μW, and discuss the practical advantages of Yb microlasers.
