Demonstration of a Bidirectional Coherent Air-to-Ground Optical Link

SPIE Photonics West

Abstract

Coherent, free-space optical communication technology offers near-quantum-limited receiver sensitivity and high spectral efficiency compared to conventional direct detection systems. In this paper, we will present the initial results from a bidirectional air-to-ground demonstration of a coherent optical link.
