Lidar with femtosecond fiber-laser frequency combs



Nathan R. Newbury, William C. Swann, Ian R. Coddington


Passively mode-locked fiber lasers produce a broad spectrum of light that is also highly phase-coherent. Such sources have clear potential for remote sensing because their broad spectrum permits high range resolution and the coherence permits operation at long ranges and measurements of small motions.
