Paper Abstract

An external-cavity laser diode that performs static wavelength scanning is proposed. It 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 have revealed that the scanning range and tuning rate are 1.3 nm and 1 kHz, respectively.
