© 1995-2012 IEEE. We present the first reliability study of InAs/GaAs self-assembled quantum dot lasers epitaxially grown on Ge/Si substrates. Some devices maintain lasing oscillation after more than 2700 h of constant current stress at 30 °C, longer than any previous life tests of GaAs lasers epitaxially grown on silicon. No catastrophic failures were observed. The lasers were characterized to gain insight on the aging mechanism.
