In this paper we show that using a DVS-BCB adhesive bonding process compact heterogeneously integrated III-V/silicon single mode lasers can be realized. Two new designs were implemented: in a first design a multimode interference coupler (MMI) – ring resonator combination is used to provide a comb-like reflection spectrum, while in a second design a triplet-ring reflector design is used to obtain the same. A broadband silicon Bragg grating reflector is implemented on the other side of the cavity. The III-V amplifier is heterogeneously integrated on the 400nm thick silicon waveguide layer, which is compatible with high-performance modulator designs and allows efficient coupling to a standard 220nm high index contrast silicon waveguide layer. In order to make the mode coupling efficient, both the III-V waveguide and silicon waveguide are tapered, with a tip width for the III-V waveguide of around 500 nm. The III-V thin film optical amplifier is implemented as a 3 ìm wide mesa etched through to the n-type InP contact layer. In this particular device implementation the amplifier section was 500 ìm long.
A waveguide-coupled output power up to 5 mW at 20⁰C and a side mode suppression ratio of more than 40dB is realized.
