We present the design and fabrication of 2 µm wavelength range type-II InP-based lasers and photodetectors integrated on a silicon photonic circuit. “W”-shaped type-II InGaAs/GaAsSb quantum wells are used as active region in the laser and photodetector structures. In order to achieve high efficient mode coupling, a taper structure in both the III-V waveguide and silicon waveguide is used. An anisotropic wet etching is used to fabricate a very narrow inverted taper tip. The integration of type-II lasers and photodetectors on a silicon photonic integrated circuit using the same III-V epitaxial stack for laser and detector enables the realization of a completely integrated spectroscopic sensor.
