In this paper we report a single mode InAs/GaAs quantum dot distributed feedback laser at 1.3 um wavelength heterogeneously integrated on a Si photonics waveguide circuit. Single mode lasing around 1300 nm with a side-mode suppression ratio higher than 40 dB is demonstrated. High temperature operation with continuous wave lasing up to 100 C is obtained. Threshold current densities as low as 205 A/cm2 were measured. These devices are attractive candidates to use in uncooled silicon photonic transceivers in data centers.
