Paper Abstract

The configuration and specifications of an optical IM/DD modulator/demodulator (modem) developed for optical intersatellite communications are described. The modem's performance was verified for the case of a commercially available high-power laser diode (LD). It was found that the modulator could modulate the high-power LD whose average output was 100 mW, at the bit rate of 360 Mbit/sec. Less than 1.0 dB degradation was measured to obtain the bit error rate of 10 to the -6th at this bit rate.
