Motorised beam expanders for meteorological LIDAR systems

Optical Surfaces provides variable focus motorised beam expanders for LIDAR system that are used in meteorological applications. An off-axis reflective beam expander greatly reduces the blind zone of LIDAR systems and therefore often offers the best solution to this problem. In LIDAR systems, such as Doppler Wind LIDAR, the wave front performance of the beam expander is very important for the LIDAR efficiency.
