Abstract: A simple and efficient system for generating wavelength-tunable optical short pulses from a self-seeded, gain-switched Fabry–Perot laser diode is presented. The laser’s external cavity consists only of a tunable optical filter. The side-mode suppression ratio is better than 30 dB over a relatively wide wavelength-tuning range of 26 nm. In addition, a constant repetition frequency of 534.65 MHz can be maintained during wavelength tuning.
