15 September 1993 Overview of photonic components for space applications: radiation and temperature responses
Author Affiliations +
A brief overview of the potential space radiation and temperature induced responses in key photonic enabling technologies is presented. An example of the recent successful operation of optical fiber systems in space is used to discuss the effects of radiation and temperature on photonic components. Typical near-earth radiation environments are examined with a short discussion on how these environments can affect photonic technologies. Forecasts on the potential performance of integrated optic devices, spatial light modulators, charge-coupled devices, and other space applicable photonic components are presented.
