Abstract
The SDL-5400 series commercial AlGaAs laser diode was characterized and screened for potential use as communication laser in the SILEX program. The lasers were initially tested through environmental extremes and for vacuum reliability to obtain preliminary indications that the laser was suitable to the requirement. Potential flight lasers were then built and screened for use. Endurance testing of samples from the potential flight lot has been completed.
