We have investigated specifically designed GaSb-based laser diodes epitaxially grown on a Si substrate. We demonstrate continuous-wave operation of these laser diodes emitting near 2 μm up to 35 °C with several mW/facet output powers, limited by our experimental setup. Our results open the way to direct monolithic III-V/Si integration.
