We demonstrate step-tunable single-mode operation of a gain-switched diode laser by nonresonant self-injection seeding from an uncoated glass slide used as an external cavity reflector. A spectral bandwidth reduction from 11 mn to 0.05 nm and wavelength tunability has been achieved for picosecond (near-transform-limited) pulses with little effect on other laser characteristics. Good agreement with numerical simulations based on a compound-cavity laser model is also reported.
