Going to space with 1064 nm – Measuring Clouds and Aerosols from the International Space Station
Fiber coupled laser diodes manufactured by our partner eagleyard photonics recently landed successfully on board at the International Space Station after the successful launch of SpaceX on 10th of January 2015
The eagleyard DFB1064 laser diodes are used as a seed source component for an integrated light detection and ranging (LiDAR) remote sensing instrument designed by a one of our lead customers in the US.
"eagleyard's space qualified laser diodes are known for their robust housing and proven quality to withstand harsh environments" so Michael Kneier, VP Sales and Marketing at eagleyard Photonics. "This is why our laser diodes got chosen to be part of the CATS (Cloud Aerosol Transport System) project."
The laser diode delivers three laser outputs at 1064 nm, 532 nm and 355 nm (2nd and 3rd harmonics of 1064 nm) to derive properties of cloud and aerosol layers.
