A simple system for producing continuous and widely wavelength-tunable optical short pulses in a mutual injection-seeding scheme is presented. The system exhibits a good side-mode suppression ratio of greater than 32.7 dB over a large wavelength tuning range of 33.8 nm. The system is easy to operate and convenient for continuous wavelength tuning.
