Abstract
Background sunlight has more or less influence on optical receiver operating in the wild. Laser receiver usually has poor performance in sunlight than designed. The paper’s intention is to test and evaluate the influence of background sunlight on laser receiver by rule and line. The measurement method was studied and measuring system was put up. The outdoor experiments were carried out at plateau. The sensitivity of laser receiver was tested separately at noon and night. The test proves that the sensitivity of laser receiver at noon is down 37.77 per cent, compared with the sensitivity at night. The analytical model of maximum operating distance was founded. With the model, the maximum operating distances at noon and night were calculated. The calculation proves that the maximum operating distances at noon falls more than 12 per cent compared with the distance at night. The test and calculation show that background sunlight has a great influence on performance of laser receiver. It’s very necessary to consider the impact of sunlight when testing, evaluating, and using laser receiver.
