Paper Abstract

We report on hybrid Si/III-V lasers with adiabatic coupling. The proposed architectures, based on adiabatic mode transformers, allow laser mode to experience maximal gain available in the III-V region while maintaining a high coupling efficiency (>95%) to Si-waveguides. Hybrid Fabry-Pérot laser and integrated racetrack laser, photodetector and waveguide-to-fiber surface grating coupler are presented.
