Abstract

Recently, we have demonstrated large mode-hop free tuning of an external-cavity diode laser with an off-the-shelf laser diode. This novel approach employs a closed-loop control based on polarization spectroscopy. In this paper, we derive a model capable of describing multicavity laser systems with polarization-dependent elements. We successfully apply it to explain the peculiar form of our error signal.
