The optical transmiter component of a free space optical communication system is critical, in that it impacts on the mechanical configuration, power requirements, mass, reliability, and transmission bit-rate of the entire system. Attention is presently given to the transmitter output power and beam quality, as well as its electrical-to-optical power conversion efficiency, in view of state-of-the-art high power transmitters for intensity modulation/direct detection and semiconductor laser transmitter systems.
