Paper Abstract

We report stabilization of self-pulsating laser diodes using a combination of self-injection locking and frequency locked loops. Short term frequency stability better than 1 part in 106 (3ffl linewidth <1 kHz at 1 .3 GHz) was readily achieved with continuous tunability from 600 MHz to over 3 GHz using inexpensive commercial devices. Experimental results illustrating the effects of loop operation on error performance in subcarrier multiplexed (SCM) systems are presented.
