Abstract

The dynamics of Fabry-Pérot external-cavity laser diodes frequency-swept at a high rate using a tunable intracavity filter are investigated by travelling-wave modelling. The effect of broad and narrow bandwidth filter properties and linewidth enhancement factor of the laser performance is assessed in this project. The phenomenon of self mode locking in a laser with a broad filter is discovered and analysed.
