An interpolation algorithm technique to automatically lock the wavelength of semiconductor laser systems by balancing the temperature and bias current of the laser is demonstrated. The wavelength accuracy is +20 pm in the bias current range of 30-120 mA for typical distributed feedback lasers and electroabsorption modulated lasers. This method is software based and does not require any optical or electrical wavelength locking circuitry.
