New fabrication routes for hybrid photonic devices are explored. We report on silicon bonding to III-V semi-conducteurs e.g. Si/InP for emission/amplification function. The materials have been bonded to silicon since it can be nanostructured to obtain optical guides. The bonded surfaces are of the order of ∼ 1 cm2. Special attention has been paid to the surface preparation. The obtained structure has been characterized employing XRD while the mechanical response and interface strength have been investigated employing instrumented nanoindentation.
