    Monolithic integration of III-V light sources with small footprint and low power consumption based on CMOS-compatible Si substrate has been regarded as an efficient route towards high-density optical interconnects in the photonic integrated circuits. However, the material dissimilarities between Si and III-V materials limit the performance of monolithic microlasers. Here, we demonstrated 1.3 µm InAs/GaAs quantum dot photonic crystal bandedge lasers monolithically grown on on-axis Si (001) substrates with ultra-low threshold of ~ 4 µWby continuous-wave optically pumping at room-temperature, which provides a feasible route towards a low-cost and large-scale integration method for light sources on the Si platform.
