Abstract

A novel design for an extended-cavity diode laser is presented. The cavity contains an electro-optic prism for synchronous tuning of the cavity length and the grating's incident angle. A simple analysis of the cavity is presented. Experimental results are reported that show mode-hop-free tuning over more than 10 GHz with high linearity and reproducibility. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first demonstration of mode-hop-free tuning of an extended cavity over several free spectral intervals with an electro-optic crystal.
