Paper Abstract

A Wideband Lasercom Transmitter based on dichroic combination of directly modulated GaAlAs laser beams was built, and its performance with regard to various requirements was evaluated; these include rise and fall times, extinction ratio, modulation bandwidth, wave-length stability, power, polarization, and transverse mode structure.
