Discovery Semiconductors’ multimode optical receivers up to 10 Gb/s are becoming increasingly used for Space-to-Ground Laser Communication Links by Tesat Spacecom, of Germany, as well as by the European Space Agency (ESA).
 
“Using a multimode optical receiver in conjunction with a self-referencing DPSK interferometer allows for the collection of photons, of up to 36 times that of a single mode fibre. These low noise, multimode optical receivers are intended to be used at data rate of 1.8 Gb/s for ESA’s Geostationary to ground station laser communication links,” said Dr. Zoran Sodnik, ESA’s Head of Opto-Electronics Section.
