Spectrum Instrumentation Digitizers and AWG used for Atmospheric research with LIDAR at Leibniz Institute

Sensitive enough to detect laser beam reflections from single atoms 100 km away even in broad daylight

Atmospheric research uses pulsed laser beams to measure temperature and wind speed along the beams by measuring the Doppler shifted and backscattered light at 100 km height in the atmosphere. The returning light signals are very weak and can be blocked by sunlight, but The Leibniz Institute for Atmospheric Physics (IAP) has solved this problem...
