NTT has developed lateral current-injection membrane lasers fabricated on silicon for short-reach optical interconnections. The lasers are fabricated using the crystal growth technique on a bonded substrate consisting of compound semiconductors and silicon. Integration of the lasers and silica-based waveguides has also been achieved recently. In this article, we introduce directly modulated lateral-current injection membrane lasers and their integration with silica-based waveguides.
