Paper Abstract

Silicon has been investigated as a platform for hybrid integration of optoelectronic, electronic, and optical components in multifiber systems. Mechanical alignment features fabricated on the surface of a silicon chip have been used to passively align the active regions of an individually addressable InGaAsPIInP laser array to four single-mode fibers. Optical coupling efficiencies have been achieved that are comparable to values obtained using the conventional technique of active fiber manipulation. Efforts are under way to fabricate hybrid transmitter arrays by the addition of GaAs electronic integrated circuits. This integration approach, which is termed silicon waferboard, has the potential to offer a compact, low-cost integration/packaging technology that can be applied to fiber-rich optical systems.
