We report on the heterogeneous integration of electrically pumped InP Fabry-Perot
lasers on a SOI photonic integrated circuit by transfer printing. Transfer printing is a promising
micromanipulation technique that allows the heterogeneous integration of optical and electronic
components realized on their native substrate onto a target substrate with efficient use of the
source material, in a way that can be scaled to parallel manipulation and that allows mixing
components from different sources onto the same target. We pre-process transfer printable etched
facet Fabry-Pérot lasers on their native InP substrate, transfer print them into a trench defined
in an SOI photonic chip and post-process the printed lasers on the target substrate. The laser
facet is successfully butt-coupled to the photonic circuit using a silicon inverse taper based spot
size converter. Milliwatt optical output power coupled to the Si waveguide circuit at 100mA is
