11 July 1989 Optomechanical Design Of A Grating Power Combiner For Laser Diodes
Author Affiliations +
The design of a compensated grating power combiner for use with semiconductor laser diodes in a satellite communications crosslink application is presented. This novel combiner concept contains the angular compensation associated with a conventional grating rhomb as well as a feature that mitigates pupil shear. A proof-of-principle version of a conventional combiner was fabricated and tested at TRW, and the limitations of this approach will be discussed and contrasted with the more novel compensated grating rhomb technique.
