    A compact narrow-linewidth semiconductor laser is demonstrated by hybridly integrating an optical filter constructed from Si waveguides with a single-mode semiconductor laser, whose spectral linewidth is narrowed through optical negative feedback. We design the optimum structure of a reflective ring filter for an optical negative feedback laser, and a narrow spectral linewidth of 160 kHz is realized by the hybridly integrated laser source whose effective device length is less than 1.5 mm.
