Paper Abstract

The capabilities of the Nd-YAG laser for optical intersatellite links have been experimentally demonstrated. The experimental setup is described and the heterodyne ASK receiver sensitivity is reported. The receiver exhibited a degradation of -5.6 dB compared to the shot noise limit.
