Expanding the dynamic range of a lidar receiver by the method of dynode-signal collection

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A method of lidar data collection by simultaneous registration of signals from the anode and several dynodes of the photomultiplier is suggested. The dynamic range of the receiver has been extended as many as 5 orders of magnitude in the case of cloud sensing. The stable operation under strong background illumination is possible without losses in fine signal structure.
