Newly Developed Laser Diode Benches to Power Franco-German Satellite MERLIN

MERLIN, the Franco-German satellite, is scheduled for launch into space in 2025 to quantify the concentration of methane in the Earth’s atmosphere—a milestone in climatic studies. The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) in Berlin supplies crucial components of the LiDAR measurement system and has now offered the necessary laser diode benches (LDBs) to the project partner.
