This book provides a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art lasers for photonic integration into silicon chips. The need for efficient laser sources on silicon is presented, motivated by the development of on-board/on-chip optical interconnects and the different integration schemes into microprocessors are discussed. The authors give descriptions of Group IV-based lasers, followed by a presentation of the results obtained through the bonding approach (hybrid III-V lasers). The monolithic integration of III-V semiconductor lasers is then reviewed, and a discussion of the different kinds of cavity geometries benchmarked with respect to their potential integration on silicon in an industrial environment is finally proposed.


1. Laser Integration Challenges.
2. Group IV Silicon Lasers.
3. III–V Lasers Bonded on Si.
4. Monolithic III–V Lasers on Silicon.
