Static wavelength scanning using tunable external cavity laser diode
Author(s): Takamasa Suzuki; Ryuichi Nagai; Osami Sasaki

Paper Abstract

An external-cavity laser diode that performs static wavelength scanning eliminates problems such as repeatability and tuning rate that arise due to mechanical movements induced in the external cavity of conventional systems, because it requires no mechanical elements. Experiments reveal that the scanning range and tuning rate are 1.1 nm and 1 kHz, respectively.
