A rolled-up microtube optoelectronic integrated circuit operating as a phototransceiver is demonstrated. The microtube is made of a InGaAs/GaAs strained bilayer with InAs self-organized quantum dots inserted in the GaAs layer. The phototransceiver consists of an optically pumped microtube laser and a microtube photoconductive detector connected by an a-Si/SiO2 waveguide. The loss in the waveguide and responsivity of the entire phototransceiver circuit are 7.96dB/cm and 34mA/W, respectively.
