Paper Abstract

The very short wavelength of optical frequency carriers compared to that of radio frequency carriers and the ability of optical and acoustical waves to interact offer potential for improved communications satellite hardware even in system configurations where the inputs and outputs are at microwave frequencies. Three such potential applications, an optical switch matrix, an optical intersatellite link and an FDMA demultiplexer and demodulator are described in the context of advanced satellite system concepts.
