Multi-kilohertz Microlaser Altimeter (MMLA)

Status

Operated By: 
PI

Developed by Dr. John Degnan under the Instrument Incubator Program, the MMLA is designed to detect single photon returns reflected from targets of interest and determine their height. This instrument is comprised of an optical bench, transmit and receive optics, computer-controlled iris, spatial and spectral filters, stray-light baffles, interface optics to a micro-laser transmitter, photo detector, and CCD camera.
