Solid State Laser Rangefinders: A Review
Keywords: Detection, Neodymium laser rangefinders, Solid state laser materials, Solid state laser rangefinders
AbstractDescribes the development of solid-state laser rangefinders, during the last thirty years. The laser rangefinders using solid-state laser materials operating in visible, near and mid-infrared spectrum of light are in use. Considering the cost, efficiency, atmospheric transmission and detection capability, neodymium laser rangefinders operating in near-infrared region are still the state-of-the-art and are more in use as compared to rangefinders using other solid-state materials. The neodymium laser rangefinders in different configurations and use, developed in this Establishment are also described. The neodymium and diode lasers with improved detection capability in multiple pulse operation with pulse correlation techniques are under development to make these rangefinders eyesafe.
