Heterogeneous integration of III-V active material based on DVS-BCB adhesive bonding is actively reported in state-of-the-art hybrid lasers. The major challenge in this method is the light coupling from the top active layer into the bottom SOI waveguides because of the low index layer between them. In this paper, we introduce some new methods for making a high efficiency and compact coupler; finally we propose an electrically pumped amplifier as well as a tunable single mode laser based on this technique for telecom applications.
