In the present work, we demonstrate the fabrication and optical properties of Bragg grating cavities that are directly integrated into ridge waveguides along with the Purcell enhanced emission from integrated quantum dots. Measured Q-factors up to 4600 are observed in combination with resonances of the fundamental mode within a ± 0.11 nm range along the full fabricated chip. The measured Purcell enhancement up to a factor of 3.5 ± 0.5 shows the potential utility for state-of-the-art on-chip quantum optical experiments as realized in off-chip implementations. Our measurements are fully supported via FDTD simulations giving a theoretical Purcell enhancement up to a factor of 20 with a highly directional β dir-factor of 70 %. The straightforward upscaling and robust design of the investigated Bragg grating cavity in combination with a substantial Purcell enhancement represents a major step towards large scale on-chip quantum photonic circuits.
