Mutual phase locking has been achieved through series connection of a semiconductor laser and a Gunn diode oscillator. Experimental results obtained demonstrate a mutual interaction between the two oscillators which results in a short term Gunn diode oscillator stability and improved spectral purity of its output. We also observe a narrowing of laser pulses and an improvement in regularity.
