Lasers for LIDAR

LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing application that uses pulsed laser light to measure variable distances to the earth.  A LIDAR system typically consist to 4 main components; first a laser source; second scanner and optics; third photodetector and receiver electronics; and lastly position and navigation system.  The light generated from these laser sources as well as the information gathered from these other components are used to generate highly precise three-dimensional maps. A wide range of laser wavelengths, from the visible to near-IR, are used for LIDAR applications.  532nm to 1um wavelengths have cost benefits. But consequently can be hazardous to the eye if the beam is not expanded to an acceptable diameter that makes it compliant with eye-safe … Read More
