    Description

    The Free Space Optical Communications Group is focused in develop and research of quantum optical communications equipments and implementations,  between buildings, islands or with LEO/GEO satellite. Also exploit Adaptive Optics in quantum optical communications, develop powerful new technologies.  

    Our EXPERIENCE is:

    - QKD optical ground terminal developments

    - Inter-building free space Quantum Communications link

    - Performance improvement of free space Quantum Key Distribution with an Adaptive Optic system

    - LEO to Ground optical communications link using adaptive optics

    - Adaptive Optics experimental platform with laser uplink pre-compensation
