In this work, the technique of hot embossing has been applied for the bonding of alumina-phosphate (PAL) glass with cobalt-doped magnesium aluminate (MALO) crystals. The application of the hot embossing technique for bonding of PAL/MALO is a competitive method, as compared to the existing thermobonding techniques. The obtained PAL/MALO interfaces show high quality, similar to what is currently achievable with other, more expensive traditional methods. The interfaces of the bonded samples have been successfully tested for strength and damage thresholds. The damage threshold is estimated to be around 4.57.9kW/cm2. Therefore, microlasers can be developed based on the obtained components.
