ICSO 2016

International Conference on Space Optics

The purpose of ICSO 2016 (International Conference on Space Optics) is to bring together the Space Optics Community and exchange information and ideas on the Research, Development, Qualification and Flight Experience of using optical technologies for space missions. Technology experts meet Mission experts to address the lessons learnt from past developments and identify the next significant developments in employing lightwave technologies and techniques used in all types of Space Missions.

Juan Barbero , Innovation, Optoelectronics and New Technologies Technical Manager, from Alter Technology, is part of the Programme committee .

Our experts participate in the following papers,

  • Radiation tests on semiconductor optical sources for space applications
  • Mid-power PM booster and optical fiber pre-amplifier for 1.55 µm satellite laser communications
  • Optoelectronic Modules for Space Applications
  • Multi-core Fiber Amplifier Arrays for Intra-Satellite Links
  • Random-modulation differential absorption LIDAR based on semiconductor lasers and single photon counting for atmospheric CO2 sensing
