Abstract

We demonstrate an optical interconnection link on silicon. Compact InP-based micro-disk lasers and photodetectors (PDs) are connected via Si photonic waveguides on top of a Si wafer. The photonic devices are fabricated in a way compatible with wafer scale processing steps, guaranteeing compatibility towards future generation electronic IC processing. Device design, fabrication, integration scheme and preliminary measurements of the full optical link are described in this paper.
