Abstract

We have developed an active alignment of receiving beam (AARB) function for coaxial optics in wind sensing coherent Doppler lidar using feedback control based on the heterodyne-detected signal processing of backscattered light from the aerosols. The proposed method needs only the simple alignment components and contributes to the robustness for the coherent lidars with the high-power laser transmitter under the risky condition of misalignment, for example, in the airborne application. The concept, design, and evaluation results of the alignment precision are shown. The effect of the AARB is demonstrated for both cases of the hard target and soft target (i.e., wind sensing). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of the AARB concept for the wind sensing coherent lidar.
