Abstract

During the laser communication link experiments between NASA’s LADEE and ESA’s optical ground station on Tenerife island, DLR-IKN carried out received-power measurements using a highly sensitive power detector, and wavefront quality analysis using the focal speckle pattern method. This paper reports on the evaluation of power fluctuation statistics and wave-front quality under varying elevations, times of day, and lunar background light.
