The invention listed below was made jointly by scientists from NIST and from Schott Glass Technologies Inc. under the auspices of a Cooperative Research and Development agreement (CRADA). In 1995 all rights in the invention were assigned to the United States, as represented by the Secretary of Commerce. Pursuant to the terms of the CRADA, Schott Glass currently retains the rights to negotiate, on Schott Glass's behalf, the terms of a non-exclusive commercialization license to the invention. NIST may enter into a CRADA with the licensee to perform further research on the invention for purposes of commercialization. The invention available for licensing is:

NIST Docket Number: 93-039CIP

Title: Integrated Optic Laser

Abstract; A laser waveguide medium is provided comprising:

A laser glass substrate wherein the substrate is a glass comprising (on an oxide composition basis):

P2 O250-70
A12 O34-13
Na2 O10-35
La2 O30-6
Ln2 O3>0-6
R1 O0-20
R2 O0-18

Wherein Ln2 O3 is the sum of the oxides, of active lasing lanthanides of atomic number 58-71, R1 O is the sum of oxides of Mg, Ca, Cr, Ba, Zn and Pb, and R2 O is the sum of oxides of Li, K, Rb and Cs; and

A waveguide region embedded in the substrate, the waveguide region having a higher refractive index than the substrate and the waveguide region having an inlet region through which light can enter and an outlet region through which light can exit.
