Abstract

We have tested the use of a super-continuum laser source in laser-based spectral backscatter measurement. The calibration and first results with the prototype instrument are presented with a discussion of improvements and applications in laser-based hyperspectral remote sensing and laboratory measurements. This technique enables the spectral study of the backscatter effects and the calibration and test measurements for the purpose of airborne laser measurement. We also explore the prospect of using a supercontinuum laser source in a broadband (hyperspectral) lidar.
