Paper Abstract

Although silicon photonics is now attracting much attention and some devices are manufactured already, development of light sources based on Si related materials is still a big issue. In this talk, promising candidates of light sources with Ge quantum dots are introduced and their characteristics are discussed. We fabricated three kinds of structures embedding Ge dots as light sources, that is, micro-cavities with Si/SiGe distributed Bragg reflector (DBR), photonic crystals and micro-disks formed on SOI substrates.
