5. Sensing with Coherent Light and LiDAR
Laser linewidth is the finite spectral width related to phase fluctuations in emitted laser light. A lower linewidth implies a purer laser frequency. If a laser’s phase noise is zero, it has a single pure frequency, which is just a line in the frequency domain. Ergun Canoglu, PhD and Director of Sensor Products is interviewed […]
