Paper Abstract

This paper presents the technical solutions implemented with the support of the French Space Agency (CNES) to design and manufacture hermetic Lithium Niobate (LiNbO3: LN) modulators, in the framework of a Research & Technology (R&T) project [1]. There is also presented some identified space-compatible raw materials that constitute modulators and some relevant results of a space evaluation program realized on about fifteen of these hermetic modulators (including hermeticity tests, mechanical tests and climatic tests).
