Abstract
The advent of space-based coherent diode laser communication systems requires development of space-qualified laser diagnostics to make these systems robust in face of aging laser parameters. This paper describes the packaging and performance of a diagnostic system which sets the wavelength, tone spacing and optical power of a directly modulated frequency-shift-keyed GaAlAs laser transmitter.
