We report an effective technique for generating wavelength-tunable chirp-compensated single-mode pulses with a high sidemode suppression ratio (SMSR) based on self-seeding a Fabry-Perot laser diode. This technique relies on the use of a tunable linearly-chirped fiber Bragg grating to provide wavelength-selective feedback, output filtering, and chirp compensation. With this technique, we have generated chirp-compensated picosecond pulses with a SMSR higher than 40 dB over a tuning range of 11.5 nm.
