We report on single-mode C-band distributed feedback lasers fabricated through micro-transfer-printing of semiconductor optical amplifier coupons fabricated on a InP source wafer onto a silicon-on-insulator photonic circuit. The coupons are micro-transfer printed on quarter-wave shifted gratings defined in SiN deposited on the silicon waveguide. Alignment-tolerant adiabatic tapers are used to efficiently couple light from the hybrid III-V/Si waveguide to the Si waveguide circuit. 80 mA…
