Abstract

A III–V thin-film single-quantum-well edge-emitting laser is patterned on both sides of the epitaxial layer and bonded to silicon. Injected threshold current densities of 420 A cm 2 for gain-guided lasers with bottom p-stripes and top n-stripes and 244 A cm 2 for index-guided bottom p-ridge and top n-stripe lasers are measured with a lasing wavelength of 995 nm . These threshold current densities, among the lowest for thin-film edge-emitting lasers on silicon reported to date (to our knowledge), enable the implementation of integrated applications such as power-efficient portable chip-scale photonic sensing systems.
