An acronym for light detection and ranging, LIDAR is a remote sensing method that uses pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) and generate precise, 3D data. The key component of a quality LIDAR system is the laser source transmitting the beam.
Spectra-Physics’ VGEN-SP and VGEN-ESP LIDAR fiber lasers incorporate state-of-the-art technology for top performance in technically demanding LIDAR and range finding applications. Our unique short-pulse fiber lasers boast high peak power levels and repetition rates, narrow spectral properties, and excellent beam quality, enabling high-altitude mapping with increased resolution, precision, SNR, and scanning time in top-tier airborne or mobile LIDAR systems.
