Abstract

The authors demonstrate silicon based visible lasers as potential optical interconnects by combining silicon processed resonators and solution processed light-emitting polymers. The high refractive index and absorption coefficient of silicon at these wavelengths were addressed by developing distributed Bragg reflector resonators on a silicon-on-insulator substrate. The performance of the hybrid structure was characterized and analyzed in comparison to an all-silica counterpart and mechanisms for controlling the number of longitudinal modes and for tuning the emission wavelength were explored.
