Laser Comms Hardware

The gear I will be using for the experiments:-


Laser Diode Module from Oatley Electronics ($AUD8 ea) modulated by tone generated by Creative Labs Soundblaster soundcard.  The hardware to convert the sinusoidal wave from the soundcard to OOK signal needs to be designed.


OPT210 from Burr-Brown plus amplification to a level suitable for inputting to the Soundblaster card.


100mm Maksutov telescope with spotting scope plus telephoto lenses with eyepiece.

Photographs to follow in the next few months.

E-mail me with comments, suggestions and corrections.
