Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the use of a high-power infrared semiconductor laser for power and data transfer via a wireless system for controlling a space-based reconfigurable reflector antenna. We present a theoretical description of the processes that occur during power transfer via an optical fiber. We provide a block diagram and component specification list for the experimental setup. We analyze the experimental results and reach a variety of conclusions. We examine restrictions on the use of fiber-optic circuits for power transfer.
