Technology validation of optical components and degradation measurements.
Technology validation of optical components. The measurement of the degradation of the gain of the saturation power and the noise figure of a microwave link opto-optically amplified as a function of the cumulative radiative dose and temperature undergone by the EDFA. Comparing the measurements obtained with theoretical models of degradation to validate. The design validation of the CubeSat mission NimphSat for opto-microwave components metrology by measuring environmental conditions suffered by the payload and the platform and by the transmission of satellite operation indicators.
