Recently reported state-of-the-art adhesively bonded III-V/Silicon laser diodes are fabricated using the adhesive DVS-BCB. The efficiency of the laser is mostly related to the coupling efficiency between the III-V and SOI waveguide layer. In this paper, an adiabatically tapered heterogeneously integrated III-V laser is engineered for high coupling efficiency, while at the same time resulting in a short length device and the optimum structure with respect to the fabrication tolerances. Moreover, a tunable laser design in order to demonstrate suitability of this technique in the realization of an array of single wavelength lasers is presented and discussed.
