Abstract

A method of transferring an RF reference frequency through the turbulent atmosphere is presented. Using two optical wavelengths close to each other can compensate for the influence of the atmospheric piston error. The influence of the atmosphere on the phase of the optical signal is calculated together with the remaining error by transferring two carriers. The system was implemented in a laboratory test-bed, and stability measurements are shown.
