Abstract
We compare the design of three different single mode laser structures consisting in a Reflective Semiconductor Optical Amplifier coupled to a silicon photonic external cavity mirror. The three designs differ for the mirror structure and are compared in terms of SOA power consumption and side mode suppression ratio (SMSR). Assuming then a Quantum Dot active material, we simulate the best laser design using a numerical model that includes the peculiar physical characteristics of the QD gain medium. The simulated QD laser CW characteristics are shown and discussed.
