High-speed directly modulated lasers integrated on a silicon waveguide circuit are of paramount importance for optical interconnect applications. Therefore, there is substantial research effort focusing on the high-speed direct modulation characteristics of semiconductor lasers. Several factors limit the upper frequency at which a laser diode can be modulated. Relaxation oscillations limit the modulation bandwidth in classical laser diodes. In large signal modulation over long distance chirp, overshoot, delay time, rise and fall times should be considered.Our research concerns the design and fabrication of single mode directly modulated semiconductors lasers on a silicon platform, with enhanced modulation bandwidth up to 30 GHz by using detuned loading and photon-photon resonances. We are working both on InP-based devices and GaAs-based quantum dot materials integrated on top of the silicon waveguide circuit by means of adhesive bonding.
