Narrow linewidth tunable diode lasers are an important tool for spectroscopic instrumentation. Conventional external cavity diode lasers are designed as laboratory instrument and do not allow hand-held operation for portable instruments. A new miniaturized type of tunable external cavity tunable diode laser will be presented. The presentation will focus on requirements on the assembly technology of micro-optic components as well as on the physical properties of such devices. Examples for the realization of this new technology will be given in the NIR for Alkaline Spectroscopy as well as in the MIR at 1908nm.
