Paper Abstract

There is increasing interest in the use of optical methods for managing RF signals in space, with applications for both ground-to-satellite and inter-satellite communications readily envisaged. The potential weight-saving of optical fiber over metallic waveguide or coaxial channels is very significant; moreover, there are obvious advantages to be gained from the enormous data capacity of multiplexed fiber links.
