Abstract
A transmitter laser breadboard suitable for a coherent space communication system is under development. Major design goals are 1W CW output power, 100 kHz linewidth at low drift, 8 percent electrical to optical conversion efficiency, and 3 dB power degradation over 7 years operation. An oscillation output of 600 mW is amplified by two double-pass stages to 1 W.
