Abstract

We demonstrate the first electrically pumped continuous-wave (CW) III–V semiconductor lasers epitaxially grown on on-axis (001) silicon substrates without offcut or germanium layers, using InAs/GaAs quantum dots as the active region and an intermediate GaP buffer between the silicon and device layers. Broad-area lasers with uncoated facets achieve room-temperature lasing with threshold current densities around 860  A/cm2 and 110 mW of single-facet output power for the same device. Ridge lasers designed for low threshold operations show maximum lasing temperatures up to 90°C and thresholds down to 30 mA.
