Paper Abstract

Limitation of a received elastic scattering flux in the image plane of a scattering volume by spatial filters is a means of analyzing the spatial and power characteristics of a lidar signal. This analysis is of particular use with a lidar for studying optically dense aerosol objects. Special features of incoherent spatial filters and the association of the filter parameters with the performance of a lidar transceiver system are considered. Factors limiting the spatial filter operation, including the sounding beam divergence and spatial and frequency spectrum limitation by an optical receiving system, are examined. The latter two are most essential.
