Abstract

We analyze a silicon/III–V hybrid semiconductor waveguide structure for laser oscillation. We show that, by optimally designing and controlling the resonant supermode behavior in such structures, the modal gain can be enhanced five times compared with that of the existing silicon evanescent laser, while maintaining efficient coupling to outside silicon waveguide circuits.
