Paper Abstract

We present an electronically tuneable external cavity diode laser that incorporates a digital micromirror device for spectral tuning. The design allows for high tuning speed of 0.85nm/ms over a typical tuning range of 47.4nm. The laser-system is characterized concerning spectral and time-related aspects. Application of the laser in a swept-source optical coherence tomography system is demonstrated.
