Abstract

Si-photonic hybrid ring external cavity wavelength tunable lasers by passive alignment techniques with more than 100-mW fiber-coupled power and linewidth narrower than 15 kHz along the whole C-band are demonstrated. These attractive performances are achieved due to very low loss Si-wire waveguides, of which loss is lower than 0.5 dB/cm. Obtained results show excellent features of Si-photonics toward commercial products.
