Summary: 
The recent progress in the field of Ti:Er:LiNbO3 waveguide lasers with emission wavelengths in the range 1530 nm < λ < 1603 nm is reviewed. After a short discussion of the relevant fabrication methods concepts and properties of different types of lasers with grating resonator, acoustooptically tunable Fabry Perot type lasers and new ring laser structures are presented.
