Paper Abstract

Basic principles of weak echo-signals laser receiving are briefly summarized and autodyne lidars employing this way of weak signal detection while sounding the atmosphere are described. Detection of weak light signals by a hybrid laser is studied theoretically and experimentally. Autodyne lidar modifications, namely the multipurpose cw parametric autodyne lidar which allows one to increase a set of retrieved from the received by the laser echo-signal optical and dynamic characteristics of an atmospheric path and a remote retroreflector and a hybrid lidar in which positives of conventional cw autodyne lidars are combined with those inherent to pulsed lidars are discussed
