Abstract
An Nd:YAG laser transmitter was developed for free space optical communications with a projected output power of 600 mW. Suitable for data rates in excess of 1 Gbps, the transmitter employs a waveguide modulator to minimize overall power consumption. The transmitter''s feasibility is shown.
