Paper Abstract

An experimental coherent communication link has been realized to investigate various aspects of a diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser space communication system. The breadband 500 Mb/s link is based on low power monolithic ring lasers and a balanced receiver PSK homodyne detection scheme. Fiberoptic components are being investigated and a novel fiber-nutator device for coherent tracking has been developed.
