The high vertical index contrast and the small thickness of InP-based membrane structures bonded with BCB on Silicon allow the realization of very small devices. Since photonic integrated circuits consist of both passive and active components, a successful active-passive integration with sub-micrometer active regions is an essential step. In this paper we will present our results on active-passive integration with sub-micrometer active areas. The interference of active and passive area shows a good quality in terms of morphology. Moreover we find that in the sub-micrometer size active area, the degradation of the material(InGaAsP QWs) due to clean room processing is limited.
