7 December 1999 Reliability of 1300-nm laser diode for space applications

A transmission data link has been simulated using a high speed digital signal to modulate a 1300 nm laser diode. A Nd:YAG laser was used to simulate ionizing effects induced by transient particle irradiation on the laser diode by creating carriers only in the laser cavity. With this method, calibration of ionizing effects, error amplitude and influence of operational parameters of the link (frequency, amplitude of modulation...) have been studied. Heavy ions at different energies have been used to confirm transient effects, but the perturbation duration, too short compared with the Nd:YAG, have limited observation of the transient error due to ionizing effects. Permanent damages have been observed and their origin linked with the particle.
