Abstract

A theory of the double-edge technique for lidar measurement of wind speed Doppler shifts was recently presented by Flesia and Korb [Appl. Opt. 38, 432 (1999)]. It is shown here that the technique proposed by Flesia and Korb to achieve equal responsivity to aerosol and Rayleigh backscatter signals was previously conceived and demonstrated by another group.
