Abstract

Hybrid Si/III–V, Fabry–Perot evanescent lasers are demonstrated, utilizing InGaAsP as the III–V gain material for the first time to our knowledge. The lasing threshold current of 300-μm-long devices was as low as 24mA, with a maximal single facet output power of 4.2mW at 15°C. Longer devices achieved a maximal single facet output power as high as 12.7mW, a single facet slope efficiency of 8.4%, and a lasing threshold current density of 1kAcm2. Continuous wave laser operation was obtained up to 45°C. The threshold current density, output power, and efficiency obtained improve upon those of previously reported devices having a similar geometry. Facet images indicate that the output light is largely confined to the Si waveguide.
