A heterogeneously integrated III-V-on-silicon laser is reported, integrating
a III-V gain section, a silicon ring resonator for wavelength selection and two silicon
Bragg grating reflectors as back and front mirrors. Single wavelength operation with
a side mode suppression ratio higher than 45 dB is obtained. An output power up to
10 mW at 20 ⁰C and a thermo-optic wavelength tuning range of 8 nm are achieved.
The laser linewidth is found to be 1.7 MHz.
