Paper Abstract

A space-qualified module incorporating a high power semiconductor diode laser, collimating lens, thermal control, and driver circuit is described. Three such modules are used in an optical transmitter designed for use in NASA space laser communications experiments. Details of the various components are discussed, as well as laser diode lifetest results.
