Free-Space Optical Systems

The group “Free-Space Optical Systems” (FSO) offers expertise and solutions for wireless high-speed point-to-point links. Our laser-based systems cover terrestrial and space applications. Considered links are eye-safe, tap-proof and do not require any spectrum license. Data rates are higher than 10 Gbit/s. Techniques for mitigation of atmospheric perturbations provide high link reliability and availability.

Research Topics

Our research topics include

  • single-mode fiber coupling
  • optical beam position tracking
  • coherent telescope array
  • atmospheric channel modelling
