Abstract
We use a laser diode from a commercial CD/DVD-ROM drive to detect changes in the surface of a diffraction grating without a photodiode. Specifically, we exploit the changing terminal voltage in the laser-diode due to changing feedback strength as the laser is rastered across the grating's surface.
