Using Light-Emitting Diodes for intersatellite links

  title={Using Light-Emitting Diodes for intersatellite links},
  author={Lloyd Wood and Will Ivancic and Klaus-Peter Dorpelkus},
  journal={2010 IEEE Aerospace Conference},
We examine the utility of Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) for short-range intersatellite links (ISLs), and compare and contrast LEDs with existing laser technologies used for long-distance ISLs. A hypothetical low-end LED ISL link is described, and applications are suggested.
