Extended-cavity semiconductor lasers (ECL) have recently been extensively studied to improve the spectral characteristics of laser diodes [1,2]: these lasers have spectral linewidh and tuning properties that ire far much better than ordinary laser diodes. The main applications of such lasers are, of course, connected with coherent optical communications, however, they are also of great interest in other fields such as atomic physics, spectroscopy, Cesium frequency standards as well as laser frequency standards. We describe here our latest results concerning these various applications of this new type of tunable laser sources.
