This report concerns the development of a novel spatially modulated gain SMG electro-optical waveguides laser on LiNb03 substrate. The main goal of this work is to implement an active LiNb03 waveguide with the desired spatially modulated gain medium profile. We met this goal by implementing a Ti diffused erbium doped active laser waveguide that exploits optical Birefringence, pump beam standing wave pattern, and resonance optical pumping. In this report we discuss in detail the SMG waveguide design, SMG laser design performance modeling, SMG laser fabrication, and measurement results.
