Abstract
An injection-locked, pulsed Doppler lidar for atmospheric wind monitoring is described. The lidar produces up to 50 pulses per second with energies of about 1 J per pulse. Transverse mode suppression is effected with an output coupler whose radial reflectivity is parabolically-tapered. The lidar has been used to measure winds in several unique field experiments.
