Abstract
A 1550 nm eye-safe, free-space optical communications link has been demonstrated at rates up to 5 Mbps over a distance of two kilometers in the Chesapeake Bay, using quantum-well-based modulating retro-reflectors. In addition to waveform studies, video and audio transmission has also been carried out, as well as bit error rate measurements. Tests have been conducted under various atmospheric conditions over a time period of eight months.
