Abstract

In this Letter, a III–V/silicon hybrid single-mode laser operating at C band for photonic integration circuit is presented. The InGaAlAs gain structure is bonded onto a patterned silicon-on insulator through wafer to wafer directly. The mode selected mechanism based on a hybrid III–V/silicon straight cavity with periodic microstructures is applied, which only need low cost i-line projection photolithography in the whole technological process. At room temperature, we obtain 0.62 mW output power in continuous-wave. The side mode suppression ratio of larger than 20 dB is obtained from experiments. Over 10,000 h lifetime can be reached.
