Abstract

A compact 1.5 μ m all-fiber pulsed coherent Doppler lidar system for wind sensing, which includes the functions of variable pulse width and automatic polarization control has been developed. The system configuration is introduced and key components used in the system are explained. Theoretical performances of the system in wind sensing are estimated and compared with experimental results. The measurable range corresponding to the detection probability of > 80 % is ∼1 km or more in the case of 150   m range resolution under the normal atmospheric conditions.
