Corning Varioptic invites you to their event

“Corning Varioptic Lenses – Session #3” – Free Space Laser Communication using liquid lens technology

About this event

We are pleased to announce a third event that will focus on a specific application: Free space laser communication.

During this event, we will have the privilege to host, as the main speaker, special guest Shreeyam Kacker from The Space Telecommunications, Astronomy and Radiation Laboratory, which is part of the Space Systems Laboratory in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT.

The study was supported by an Early Stage Innovations grant from NASA’s Space Technology Research Grants Program.

Laser communication (lasercom) enables more efficient links across larger distances compared to radio frequency (RF) systems. Lasercom systems are typically point-to-point connections that would have difficulty interacting with several concurrently active spatially diverse users, where RF systems can more easily support such scenarios.

Lasercom pointing, acquisition, and tracking (PAT) systems have traditionally relied on mechanical beam steering devices, such as fast steering mirrors (FSMs) or gimbals, both of which are subject to potential mechanical failure.

We will demonstrate an alternative steering solution using Corning® Varioptic® liquid lenses.

We look forward to seeing you there!
