We demonstrate over 8dB gain in pulsed regime in an InP/InGaAlAs membrane waveguide heterogeneously integrated on a silicon-on-insulator waveguide circuit and optically pumped through the silicon waveguide layer, using a peak pump power of only 4.5mW. This is an important step towards a CMOS-compatible optical amplifier for intra-chip optical interconnects.
