We demonstrate a tunable transmitter, integrating a hybrid III-V/Si laser fabricated by wafer bonding and a silicon Mach-Zehnder modulator. The integrated transmitter exhibits 9 nm wavelength tunability by heating an intra-cavity ring resonator, high extinction ratio from 6 to 10 dB, and excellent bit-error-rate performance at 10 Gb/s.
