Spaceborne lasers development for ALADIN and ATLID instruments
ALADIN TXA and ATLID TxA are All-Solid-State, compact, state-of-the-art, Transmitter-laser Assemblies for the Aeolus wind lidar and Earth Care Atmospheric lidar satellites respectively. Expand
Diode-pumped high-efficiency high-brightness Q-switched ND:YAG slab laser.
A high-efficiency diode-pumped Q-switched Nd:YAG oscillator designed for future spaceborne applications has been demonstrated and characterized. The laser is based on a side-pumped slab geometry andExpand
2-μm double-pulse single-frequency Tm:fiber laser pumped Ho:YLF laser for a space-borne CO2 lidar.
In the framework of space-borne CO2 lidar development, the transmitter is a critical unit. We report on the development and the assessment of performances of a 2-μm single-frequency thulium fiberExpand
A Space Rubidium Pulsed Optical Pumped Clock - Current Status, Results, and Future Activities
Abstract : Since the year 2000, Selex Galileo activity on Space Frequency Standards has been pursuing the development of a Passive Hydrogen Maser (PHM), presently the primary clock of the GalileoExpand
Industrialisation approach of the pop atomic clock for application to GNSS
The POP clock is a vapor cell frequency standard operating in pulsed regime at the Rb ground-state hyperfine frequency (6834 MHz). Expand
Spaceborne lasers development for ALADIN instrument on board ADM-Aeolus ESA mission
ALADIN TXA is the first in the world All-Solid-State, Compact, Transmitterlaser Assembly for the first in the world Doppler Wind Lidar inside the ESA Aeolus mission. Its optical architecture is thatExpand
Measurement and characterization of the frequency noise of a laser-diode-pumped single-frequency Tm-Ho:YAG laser
The frequency noise characteristics of a single-frequency 2.1-μm Tm-Ho:YAG laser have been thoroughly investigated. From the measurement of the frequency noise spectral density, performed by means ofExpand
Receiver and transmitter design criteria in coherent Doppler wind lidar
In this paper an overview is given of some of the problems to be faced and the approaches to their possible solutions, in the design of a Doppler wind lidar. The emphasis is devoted to the causes ofExpand
High energy, single frequency, tunable laser source operating in burst mode for space based lidar applications
This paper describes energetic, spatial, temporal and spectral characterization measurements of the Engineering Qualification Model (EQM) of the Laser Transmitter Assembly (TXA) used in the ALADINExpand
High energy, single frequency, tunable laser source operating in burst mode for space based lidar applications
This paper describes the laser transmitter assembly used in the ALADIN instrument currently in C/D development phase for the ESA ADM-AEOLUS mission (EADS Astrium as prime contractor for the satelliteExpand
