    A distributed feedback channel waveguide laser in erbium-doped aluminum oxide on a silicon substrate is reported. The optically pumped laser has a threshold pump power of 15 mW and emits 3 mW in single-frequency operation at 1545.2 nm wavelength with a slope efficiency of 6.2% and linewidth of 15 kHz.
