Research output: PatentPatent publication

Abstract

A seamlessly integrated hybrid optical network device. The device comprises: a semiconductor light source (10) mounted in a cavity in a silicon substrate (11), wherein the semiconductor light source (10) is fabricated from a non-silicon material; and a photonic bandgap (PBG) structure (22) seamlessly integrated with the semiconductor light source (10) to act as an optical wave guide for the photons emitted by the semiconductor light source (10), wherein the PBG structure (22) is etched directly in the silicon substrate.
