Phase locking with frequency tuning is demonstrated for a resonant-tunneling-diode terahertz oscillator integrated with a biased varactor diode. The tuning range of oscillation frequency is 606-613GHz. The phase noise in the output of the oscillator is transformed to amplitude noise, and fed back to the varactor diode together with bias voltage. The spectral linewidth at least <2Hz was obtained at the oscillation frequencies tuned by the bias voltage of the varactor diode.
