Lidar Laser: Definition & Applications - Inphenix Inc.
Lidar, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing technology that uses lasers to measure distance and create high-resolution maps. The laser used in Lidar systems is often referred to as a Lidar laser.
#lidarlasers typically operate at wavelengths that are in the near-infrared range, which allows the laser to penetrate through vegetation and other obstacles. They also require high pulse energies and short pulse durations to achieve high resolution and accuracy.
