Monolithically Integrated III-V Gain Material on Virtual Substrates on Si Using Template-Assisted Selective Epitaxy

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Monolithically integrated light sources on silicon are key for future semiconductor microchips that comprise Si CMOS and on-chip optical interconnects as prerequisite for more energy efficient computers and data centres. Recently, major advances were achieved regarding direct integration of III-V gain material on silicon without introducing threading dislocations, especially via heteroepitaxy of semiconductor nanowires [1]. In particular, lasing of III-V nanowires on silicon [2] have been reported demonstrating the high potential of such devices for future on-chip light sources. However, nanowire cavities provide only low optical feedback from the NW-end facets which increases their lasing threshold. Additionally, vertically grown nanowires hinder efficient coupling to in-plane photonic waveguides and circuitries.
