Investigation of coherent receiver designs in high-speed optical inter-satellite links using digital signal processing
Author(s): S. Schaefer; M. Gregory; W. Rosenkranz

Paper Abstract

Due to higher data rates, better data security and unlicensed spectral usage optical inter-satellite links (OISL) offer an attractive alternative to conventional RF-communication. However, the very high transmission distances necessitate an optical receiver design enabling high receiver sensitivity which requires careful carrier synchronization and a quasi-coherent detection scheme.
