Optical interconnects require fast and efficient electrically-injected nanoscale light sources that can be coupled efficiently to a low-loss photonic waveguide. The spontaneous emission rate can be increased by coupling the active region of a nanoscale emitter to an optical antenna, which would allow for modulation rates greater than 50 GHz. The aim of this project is to demonstrate high waveguide-coupled external quantum efficiency of an optical antenna to a single mode InP waveguide.
