In our work, we explore the deposition of erbium doped YSZ by pulsed layer deposition (PLD) on a multilayer approach providing outstanding luminescence in correspondence with C-band of telecommunication window (λ=1530 nm) and in the visible range by means of up-conversion processes. The optical properties of active layers of Er-doped YSZ grown on waveguides in different platforms and under resonant pumping will be discussed in this paper, as well as their propagation losses. Based on the preliminary study of these active hybrid systems, we envision light amplification functionalities based on rare-earth doped functional oxides.
