Semiconductor laser has the characteristic of high efficiency and small volume,which make it be the best illuminator in the night vision system so that increase the range of observation and improve the image quality of night vision system. But in bad weather, image qualitly will decline because of atmosphere's backward scattering which serious influence the laser beam. To solve this problem, We have studied how to control the working condition of semiconductor laser and make it form a pulse laser which according with range gating technology in night vision system. The result of study indicates that semiconductor laser is feasible as illuminator for night vision system.
