To perform laser communication experiments with geostationary satellite ARTEMIS (ESA) definite requirements must be placed to the laser beam polarization. The linear polarization of laser transmitting module was investigated. This linear polarization was transformed into the necessary left-hand circular polarization with the characteristics suitable for the on-board laser communication link terminal of the ARTEMIS satellite.
