dc.description.abstract In this paper, we show the experimental results of a thermally stable Si3N4 external cavity (SiN EC) laser with high power output and the lowest SiN EC laser threshold to our knowledge. The device consists of a 250 μm sized reflective semiconductor optical amplifier butt-coupled to a passive chip based on a series of Si3N4 Bragg gratings acting as narrow reflectors. A threshold of 12 mA has been achieved, with a typical side-mode suppression ratio of 45 dB and measured power output higher than 3 mW. Furthermore, we achieved a mode-hop free-lasing regime in the range of 15–62 mA and wavelength thermal stability up to 80°C. This solves the challenges related to cavity resonances’ thermal shift and shows the possibility for this device to be integrated in dense wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) and heat-intensive optical interconnects technologies. en
