Operating a laser diode in an extended cavity which provides frequency-selective feedback is a very effective method of reducing the laser�s linewidth and improving its tunability. We have developed an extremely simple laser of this type, built from inexpensive commercial components with only a few minor modifications. A 780 nm laser built to this design has an output power of 80 mW, a linewidth of 350 kHz, and it has been continuously locked to a Doppler-free rubidium transition for several days. � 1998 American Institute of Physics. @S0034-6748~98!01303-3#
