Abstract

We report a novel application of self-injection locking. A diode laser is injection locked to its own frequency-shifted emission. By resonant phase modulation of the fed-back light, the laser’s emission frequency is shown to swing periodically through the locking range. The laser operates as a sweep generator driven by resonant self-injection locking.
