This paper presents rapid, precise, and stable control of optical frequency for sampled-grating distributed Bragg reflector (SG-DBR) laser diode (LD) using a Z-cut quartz etalon supported at the middle point. The optical frequency of SG-DBR LD was controlled by the mode-hop-free three-electrode control method. As a result, stable mode operation and wide continuous tuning range without mode hopping have been realized. A 0.2-ms optical frequency tuning speed with a 4.35-THz tuning range and a 130-MHz control error of the optical frequency was demonstrated. A 1.1-MHz Allan deviation was reached at an integration time of 12 times 103 s.
