Abstract:

With the discovery of the laser there have been continual attempts to increase the spectral brightness of a laser for applications such as signal processing and lidar. To this end techniques using either passive or active cavity elements have been developed to isolate a single longitudinal mode in both continuous and pulsed laser systems. Although passive elements have useful applications in continuous systems their use in pulsed systems is difficult to control. The injection of an external signal has proved very successful.
