Abstract
InAs quantum dot (QD) laser heterostructures are grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system on GaAs substrates and fabricated. The InAs QD lasers exhibit comparable properties of the state-of-the-art QD lasers with the threshold current density Jth and efficiency ηi of 475A/cm2 and 72.6%, respectively, at room temperature. The quantum dot laser emission is butt-joint coupled into silicon photonics waveguides by aligning the laser and silicon photonics chips with two translation stages. Due to the optical feedback to the laser cavity at the air/Si interface, the laser power self-pulsation and reduced threshold current density are observed. And the effective facet reflectivity, Reff, of 62.7% is obtained from the theoretically analysis of the laser characteristics. Furthermore, the silicon photonics waveguides interface is coated with the SiO2/TiO2 antireflection (AR) coating layers, and no laser performance interference is observed owing the reduced optical feedback.
