InP membranes have appeared in the last decade as a viable integrated photonics platform, suitable for adding photonic functions to silicon electronics. It combines the strengths of silicon photonics (high index contrasts and therefore small footprint devices) with those of generic InP-platforms (monolithic integration of active and passive devices). A range of functionalities has been developed on this platform, which goes by the name of IMOS (Indium phosphide Membrane on Silicon). Competitive performances have been demonstrated for lasers, fast detectors, waveguides, filters, couplers, modulators etc. The present contribution describes the recent
developments in this platform regarding the technology and results. Among the latest results are record low propagation losses, improved input/output grating couplers, a variety of laser structures and improved wavelength demuliplexers These developments demonstrate that IMOS has a high potential to deliver photonic integrated circuits to a wide variety of application fields, e.g. telecom, datacom, sensing, terahertz and many
