The main interest of group-III-nitride nanophotonic circuits is the integration of active structures and laser sources. A photonic platform of group-III-nitride microdisk lasers integrated on silicon and emitting in the blue spectral range is demonstrated. The active microdisks are side-coupled to suspended bus waveguides, and the coupled emission is guided and outcoupled to free space using grating couplers. A small gap size of less than 100 nm between the disk and the waveguide is required in the blue spectral range for optimal evanescent coupling. To avoid reabsorption of the microdisk emission in the waveguide, the quantum wells are etched away from the waveguide. Under continuous-wave excitation, loaded quality factors greater than 2000 are observed for the whispering gallery modes for devices with small gaps and large waveguide bending angles. Under pulsed excitation conditions, lasing is evidenced for 3 μm diameter microdisks integrated in a full photonic circuit. We thus present a first demonstration of a III-nitride microlaser coupled to a nanophotonic circuit.
