The results of the experimental studing the high-frequency pulse-periodic generation of the laser diode bar phase-locked using the resonance waveguide mirror are reported in this article. The purpose was to ascertain the applicability of this diode bar as transmitter for laser space communications.
The short analysis of various semi-conductor lasers from the viewpoint of their efficiency for space communication is carried out and the greatest prospects of phase-locked diode lasers is concluded. The author's method to phase-lock a laser diode bar by means of a resonant waveguide mirror is described.
As a result it was experimentally proved that the diode ruler phase-locked by this method is capable to generate stable nanosecond pulses, and in a pulse-periodic mode the gigahertz range can be reached. Thereby data transfer rate of about gigabits per second can be provided.
