Paper Abstract

Coherent Doppler lidar has been studied for a wide range of velocity sensing applications. While most of the developed coherent lidars use 10 micrometers CO2 laser sources, the newly emerging solid-state lasers at 1-2 micrometers are being actively investigated for use as efficient and long-lived optical sources in remote sensing applications. This paper reviews recent work in the development of 1 and 2 micrometers coherent Doppler lidars for atmospheric sensing.
