Summary Broadband optical communication systems are rapidly becoming the key to overcome the stringent limitations imposed by standard electronic telecommunication networks. However, in order to complete the inevitable transition from electronics to photonics, several critical requirements must be addressed, including lowering energetic demands, achieving higher efficiency, increasing bandwidth and flexibility, all within a compact form factor [1-3]. In particular, it is broadly accepted that future photonic devices must be CMOS compatible in order to exploit the existing silicon fabrication technology that has been largely developed during the last 60 years [4-7]. Following this idea, there has been a tremendous growth of hybrid optoelectronic technologies that has not only responded to the need of lowering costs, but has also enabled on-chip ultra-fast signal processing. However, these hybrid solutions are an intermediate step to achieve the ambitious goal of an all-optical technology, which would bring together the intrinsic benefit of lowering the production costs and simplifying future ultrafast communication networks.
