Abstract

Using the theory developed in Part 1, the receiving efficiency as a function of range, η(z), is calculated under different conditions for the NOAA/ERL/Wave Propagation Laboratory CO2 Doppler lidar. Theoretical analyses, numerical calculations, and experimental measurements are carried out to quantify the sensitivity of η(z) to transmitted laser beam quality, telescope focal setting, telescope power, scanner astigmatism, LO beam divergence, and system misalignment. These results bring insight to the design of practical coherent lidar systems.
