Paper Abstract

Solid-state coherent Doppler lidar sensors operating at eyesafe wavelengths have broad application to a variety of wind measurement scenarios. We have developed a modular, autonomous, high PRF, diode-pumped coherent lidar sensor that is appropriate for wind profiling at high temporal resolution. This paper describes the design of the sensor, provides examples of high-resolution wind data, and compares the performance with modeling.
