Abstract

A new technique of dual-frequency Doppler-lidar measurement is investigated. This technique is based on the use of a coherently locked, tunable, dual-frequency laser source and is shown to accurately measure velocities as small as 26 μ m s . It is generated by exploiting the nonlinear dynamics of a semiconductor laser through a proper combination of optical injection and operating conditions.
