Paper Abstract

A transmission experiment through a free-space laser transmission simulator for an optical intersatellite link is proposed and demonstrated. For multigigabit optical intensity modulation, adoption of both a direct current modulation of the laser diode and external optical intensity modulator are examined. Bit error rate (BER) characteristics, including the far-field pattern (FFP) of the optical antenna and beam coupling loss, as well as beam pointing error fluctuation are clarified in assuming intersatellite distances. Design directions of the optical beam tracking system and high capacity optical transmission in the 0.83 micrometers wavelength region, between optical intersatellite links, are clarified in this experiment.
