Abstract

A new lidar scheme using a pseudorandom code modulated cw laser as a transmitting laser source (RM-CW lidar) is proposed and a demonstration of its use for aerosol measurement is shown. A formula for estimating the SNR values in RM-CW lidar was derived, and it was demonstrated that the observed SNR value was in good agreement with the calculation.
