SWARM laser: qualification and integration of the optical fibre components
Author(s): D. Ramecourt; T. Guettler Sergeant; T. Buret

Paper Abstract

In the frame of the SWARM mission, an Absolute Scalar Magnetometer (ASM) was developed by CEA-LETI in partnership with CNES (Centre National d’études spatiales) for the dynamic measurement of the earth’s magnetic field. This magnetometer is based on the principle of pumping a He4 cell by a Laser emitting at 1083nm. IXSPACE was in charge of the integration of the Ytterbium optical fibre laser used in the SWARM magnetometer, the optical fibre components selection and procurement for the Laser system, as well as the qualification of these components. IXSPACE has manufactured the engineering model, the two qualification models as well as the seven Laser Flight Models.
