IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, 16 (2). pp. 629-631. ISSN 1041-1135

The authors demonstrate the generation of nearly transform-limited optical pulses that are wavelength tunable over almost 50 nm. The wide tuning range is obtained by self-seeding a gain-switched source containing two Fabry-Perot lasers, and employing a widely tunable Bragg grating in the feedback loop. The generated pulses exhibit Side-mode suppression ratios of 50 dB above and across the full tuning range.
