It is demonstrated that by using a multimode fiber Bragg grating, the oscillation wavelength of semiconductor lasers can be selected by adjusting the alignment between the laser diode and multimode fiber. Wavelength locking with high output power and narrow linewidth can be realized in both static and dynamic states.
