Features of Operation of a Brightness Amplifier on Copper Bromide Vapors in the Bistatic Scheme of a Laser Monitor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Abstract—: The influence of the brightness amplifier operation mode on images formed with a bistatic laser monitor is studied. The bistatic laser monitor is an active optical system with two active elements. A possibility of imaging remote (to more than 5 m) objects with this instrument is evaluated. It is shown that a change in the concentration of active substance (copper bromide) of the amplifier significantly affects the amplification of the input signal. The active substance temperature rise from 480 to 550°C increases the gain throughout the input signal range. A further increase in the temperature (up to 570°C) increases the gain only at a relatively weak input signal (less than 100 mW). The resulting amplification characteristics of the active optical system are described and compared with the parameters of images formed (distortion and brightness).
