Hybrid photonic crystal lasers (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Energy efficient Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) is the key to satisfying the future bandwidth requirements of datacentres. As the silicon photonics platform is regarded the only technology able to meet the required power and cost efficiency levels, the development of silicon photonics compatible narrow linewidth lasers is now crucial. We discuss the requirements for such laser systems and report the experimental demonstration of a compact uncooled external-cavity mWatt-class laser architecture with a tunable Silicon Photonic Crystal resonant reflector
