    Lattice-matched KY(WO4)2:Gd3+,Lu3+,Tm3+ layers with a thickness of 6 μm have been grown onto pure KY(WO4)2 substrates. Channel waveguides of 7.5 μm to 12.5 μm width have been microstructured to a depth of 1.5 μm using Ar+ beam milling. Laser experiments with buttcoupled mirrors demonstrate laser oscillation near 1844 nm while pumping at 792 nm.
