Light Emitting Diodes for intersatellite links - LEDs4ISLs

A variety of work has been done on using LEDs for short-range intersatellite links:

Other work discussing exploiting Fraunhofer lines as relatively noise-free channels for in-space links includes:

ShindaiSat and FITSAT-1 demonstrated LED communications to ground. LEDs can also be used for satellite tracking, as planned with LEDSAT (Facebook page).
