Abstract

The Δk lidar remote-sensing method is used in a laboratory wave tank demonstration to measure the frequency of surface waves as a function of their wavelength. The results clearly demonstrate the ability of the Δk lidar method to detect a single surface wave among an ensemble of waves present on the surface with a signal-to-noise ratio that agrees with the theory.
