Micro-lasers on a silicon chip: toward silicon photonics
Demonstration and performance of micro-lasers on a silicon micro-electronic chip are reviewed. These devices use the Raman and parametric nonlinearities of thermal silica grown on silicon and exhibit sub-100 micro Watt thresholds at high quantum efficiency.
