23-24 Nov. 2015: Workshop on "Laser Diodes for Space Applications"

Dr. Andreas Kohl, head of operations at Quantel Laser Diodes, invited speaker

12 November 2015 Back


Dr. A. Kohl (Quantel Laser Diodes) will present: "Evolution and perspectives of QCW high power diodes for space applications".

The FP7-Space Project BRITESPACE in collaboration with ESA is pleased to announce the international Workshop on “Laser Diodes for Space Applications”, devoted to promote the contact between developers and manufacturers of laser diodes with developers and users of space systems.
The aim is to promote the interaction between communities of laser diodes manufacturers and space systems developers and users in both research and industry environments. In particular, this workshop will focus on the needs of appropriate laser diodes sources and configurations required by specific space applications.


- Design, development and manufacturing of pulsed and CW laser diodes and semiconductor amplifiers: Broad Area Laser Diodes, DFB, DBR, VCSEL, VECSEL, Diodes Arrays, Bars and Stacks, Master Oscillator Power Amplifier (MOPA), Photonic Crystals.
- Space applications of laser diodes: Free Space Communications, Pump Modules, Intra Satellite Communications, Microwave Photonics, Navigation Sensors, Clocks, Planetary Exploration and Monitoring: LIDAR, Spectrometers.
- Reliability of laser diodes in space environment: Thermal, Vacuum/Contamination, Radiation, Vibration. Space qualification, performance testing and characterization of laser diodes.


The programme will include both invited and contributed presentations. Remote attendance will be also available through conference web services.

III-V Lab, Campus Polytechnique 1, Avenue Augustin Fresnel, F-91767 Palaiseau Cedex, France.
