A master-oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) based 1550 nm wavelength fiber laser transmitter has been developed for Space-to-Earth communication application, utilizing Telcordia rated 1550 nm seed laser, pump lasers, and fiber optics. With adequate pre-screening of electrical components, the fiber laser transmitter has been in operation since its original launch in April 2014, for 30 months. This presents as a relatively cost-effective route for low-earth-orbit optical communication as well as LIDAR applications.
Nuphoton, in collaboration with Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena CA, will be presenting a paper covering this topic at the SPIE Lidar Conference in August 8th, 2017. The paper number is 10406-16. The link is below:
