Paper Abstract

In this paper we present analytical formulas for the brightness of images of a lidar scattering volume formed by two cross polarized components of the lidar backscatter derived for the case of a spherical polidispersion irradiated with a narrow laser beam. The calculational results we compare with the experimental ones obtained with a DLR lidar having two fields of view.
