Abstract

This paper related to a single mode laser source tunable in wavelength by a relatively rotating etalon wherein the cavity length is optimized for maximizing the mode hop free tuning range by matching the second order coefficients describing the relative change in the optical path length of the laser cavity and the relative change in the pass band of the etalon. The laser comprises of a lasing gain medium with at least one of its output facet anti-reflected coated, collimating optics, a relatively rotatable etalon and at least one relatively rotatable mirror.
