Original hybrid laser
The original hybrid InP/silicon laser, developed by Intel in conjunction with John Bowers at UCSB, emitted at 1550 nm - a wavelength typically used for long-haul transmission. Since the initial applications of silicon photonics are expected to be high-speed, high-efficiency links in data centers and server farms, there is no requirement to use this long-haul wavelength, and the 50 Gb/s demonstration featured four hybrid lasers emitting in the 1290-1330 nm range.
