Abstract

Design, performance, and environmental screening of flight prototype Ytterbium amplifiers designed for the Mars Laser Communications Demonstration are described. The high-reliability design delivered >8-W average power with low-duty-cycle PPM waveforms and >21% electrical-to-optical conversion efficiency.
