Abstract
The paper reviews recent results obtained with diode lasers used in external hybrid cavities with frequency selective feedback. Very wide discreet tunable ranges are achieved. They can be made to oscillate in a tunable mode having the desired polarization state TE or TM. High-speed polarization switching in the GHz range is possible by inserting passive or active polarization selecting elements in the cavity. Hybrid external cavities are attractive for applications in optical metrology spectroscopy and optical communications.
