Alignment-insensitive technique for wideband tuning of an unmodified semiconductor laser. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Using simple optical components and an unmodified commercial semiconductor laser, a frequency-selective self-aligning optical-feedback technique has been devised that allows a semiconductor laser to be tuned to and scanned about any optical frequency within the laser gain curve. This technique employs a graded-index rod lens cat's eye and an intracavity ├ętalon.
