Paper Abstract

Distributed feedback (DFB) diode lasers are convenient, small footprint and robust single mode laser sources. DFB lasers have an emission linewidth in the MHz to several MHz range, which may be too large for some applications, such as cold atom physics, optical clocks, laser ranging, lidar or gas sensing... Control of the diode forward current allows for the control the frequency of the emitted laser beam.
