In this paper we present a new design for III-V-onsilicon distributed feedback lasers. One of the main advantages of the design is that all structures defining the laser cavity are defined in the silicon, resulting in an easier manufacturing and more accurately controlled laser wavelength. Such a hybrid laser design offers much simpler device fabrication, since light coupling clements, like spot-size converters, are not needed. This
also reduces the device footprint.
