Pulsed lidar with multiple time coherence, combining functions of aerosol and wind lidar

The concept of an aerosol coherent lidar with the CW reference wave formed from the probing ns-laser radiation and given the multiple time coherence (MTC) property is proposed for the first time. Lidar uses the probing single-frequency laser and does not enclose the local oscillator and is compatible with the wind low-coherent Doppler lidar with the MTC of the reference and signal waves. The optical circuit abilities, the probing range, the measurement errors of atmospheric backscattering characteristics and wind are simulated.
