The lasing characteristics of a tunable-single-frequency laser operated in conjunction with a tunable external cavity are investigated. The effect of phase error in the external cavity on the lasing frequency, linewidth, and output power is calculated by deriving the characteristic equation for the FP cavity as a traveling amplifier with an effective mirror concept. The analysis suggests that the diode laser and the external cavity may be successfully tuned open-loop if the feedback strength is… CONTINUE READING
