Paper Abstract

The requirements on sources for optical communication links in space are extremely demanding and only two laser types can address these requirements. The first is to use single spatial mode semiconductor lasers as the transmitter itself. The second is to use semiconductor lasers to pump another type of laser such as Nd:YAG or Nd:glass which is then used as the transmitter.
