Paper Abstract

Solid state lasers are being actively investigated for use as efficient and long-lived optical sources in a wide variety of lidar/laser remote sensing systems. We have recently developed a short-pulse 1 micron Nd:YAG coherent Doppler lidar and a direct-detection 2.1 micron Ho lidar/DIAL in order to study the potential usage of such laser sources for atmospheric and hard target lidar measurements. In this paper, we review some of our recent work regarding these two lidar systems.
