Design and characterization of an all-cryogenic low phase-noise sapphire K-band oscillator for satellite communication
An all-cryogenic oscillator consisting of a frequency-tunable sapphire resonator, a high-temperature superconducting filter and a pseudomorphic high electron-mobility transistor amplifier wasExpand
High stability, fast tunable single frequency laser source for space based lidar applications
This paper describes the design and performance of the TESAT Reference Laser Head, acting as the frequency reference for the ALADIN Transmit Assembly (TXA) for the ESA AEOLUS satellite. FirstExpand
In the frame of the European On-Board Processing Payload demonstration programme a Tunable Down Converter (TDC) engineering model (EM) has been designed and developed. The equipment incorporates fourExpand
Frequency-stable seed laser for the Aeolus mission
Coherent LIDAR systems require a frequency-stable and tunable seed laser source [1]. In general, a cw laser acts as an injection seeder for a Master Oscillator Power Amplifier system. The seed laserExpand
An all-cryogenic low phase-noise hybrid K-band oscillator for satellite communications
Within the frame of the German research programme "High-temperature superconductor systems for satellite communication", a low phase-noise K-band oscillator, based on space qualified technology,Expand
