Paper Abstract

Low-power LASERs have been adapted for underwater use in order to solve a variety of measurement problems. Several systems, using HeNe plasma tubes, have been designed to determine range, measure size, and provide visual orientation information for photographic recording systems. Semi-conductor LASERs have been used for precise measurements of optical transmissivity and scatterance of seawater, in-situ. A number of applications will be described and future developments of these techniques will be discussed.
