Abstract : The objective of the program was to develop an electrically tunable semiconductor laser. This laser was to have a smooth tuning curve and is to be electrically tunable over a large spectral range and extremely rapidly tunable. A possible application of such a laser was as the basic tunable laser source of optical fiber sensors.
