Paper Abstract

Various applications of coupled-cavity configuration in controlling diode laser properties are reviewed. Coupling to a second cavity gives an additional degree of freedom that can be used to control the diode laser behavior. Two broad categories of coupled-cavity diode lasers can be defined: external-cavity and monolithic, depending whether the second cavity is discrete or monolithically integrated with the laser. Both schemes can be applied in a variety of applications, including longitudinal-mode control, transverse-mode control, wavelength tuning, static and dynamic linewidth control, mode locking, and optical bistability.
