    Abstract

    Reactive co-sputtering has been applied as a low-cost method for deposition of $Al_2O_3:Er^{3+}$ layers. Channel waveguide fabrication has been optimized and results in waveguides with low background losses (0.21 dB/cm), demonstrating the feasibility of realizing active photonic devices. A net optical gain of 0.84 dB/cm for a 1533-nm signal has been obtained in a 700-nm-thick Er3+-doped $Al_2O_3$ waveguide pumped at 980 nm, which is the highest gain demonstrated thus far in this material.
