Abstract
The design of a two-channel lidar with afocal transceiving telescope receiving the backscattered radiation at the axis of the probing beam and at some distance from the axis is described. The lidar with this design can detect the atmospheric backscatter amplification caused by turbulent fluctuations of the refractive index of air due to the correlation of the probing and scattered radiation. The power ratio of echo signals recorded in two different channels gives the value (coefficient) of backscatter amplification. The developed micropulse two-channel lidar can conduct unattended continuous measurements for a long time.
