Generation of wavelength-tunable optical short pulses by use of two self-seeded Fabry-Perot laser diodes in a parallel configuration is described. The system supports continuous wavelength tuning in a relatively wide range of 42 nm. The side-mode suppression ratio achieved is 35 dB across the entire wavelength tuning range. The system is convenient for continuous wavelength tuning.
