Paper Abstract

An optical intersatellite communication link terminal should be capable of simultaneously transmitting and receiving laser signals. Therefore backreflection of the transmitted laser light from the TxIRx telescope components into the receiving channel is one of the topics in Tx/Rx optics design. This paper summarizes the backreflection analysis and measurements performed on the SILEX telescope breadboard model.
