Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the influence of fast scanning motions on the performance of laser Doppler radars and presents some experimental results obtained with a CO2 homo-dyne system. The experiments show in which way the signal returns from a moving reference target (a rotating disc) and its stationary surroundings depend on the angular frequency of a fast rotating mirror slewing the laser beam around.
