Abstract
The Frequency Doubler (FDR) is a component of the External Metrology subsystem on NASA's Space Interferometry Mission, performing second harmonic generation using quasi-phasematched PPLN waveguides pigtailed with polarization maintaining fiber. The need for harmonic generation on SIM is explained. Packaging and results of performance and space-qualification testing of the FDR are described.
