Lidar reflection simulator

Fecha publicación: Octubre 2017

Nombre del Tutor: Juan Barbero (ALTER TECHNOLOGY)

Ponente: Ignacio Esquivias Moscardó

Este TFM se llevará a cabo en la empresa ALTER TECHNOLOGY (Tres Cantos) con contrato en prácticas

Descripción: The reflections from a LIDAR, especially from a satellite, are very weak and depend a lot of the target. A lab simulator of these signals is very useful for LIDAR detector characterization. The TFM proposed is the development of a LIDAR simulator prototype using a laser to be shaped with an arbitrary form (pulse shaping) by using a low power laser diode, a driver and an arbitrary waveform generator and its characterization.

Descripción: The use of optical transceivers is space is becoming crucial for the optical communication satellites. Most of the transceivers use a VCSEL laser and a photodiode for transmission and detection. The TFM proposed is the development of a prototype of an Optical Transceiver for transmission through optical fibers using commercial devices (therefore not integrated in any package) and its characterization.

Descripción: The analysis of the atmosphere gases (greenhouse) is being done using Differential Absorption Lidars (DIAL). These techniques are limited by the laser wavelength being used. For example, a map of the CO2 concentration can be drawn with lasers working at 1572nm by comparison of the reflected light at a CO2 absorption line and at a slightly different wavelength. A Supercontinuum laser source (also known as White lasers) could be used for the same DIAL technique but covering a very wide spectrum range. This would allow the detection not only of one gas as the CO2, but of any other gases in the atmosphere combining the range resolution of a standard DIAL system with the wide spectrum analysis capabilities of the Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS). This supercontinuum DIAL technique would allow a more complete study of the climate changes and the greenhouse effects. Studying the reflection of the light on the ground could also allow determining what types of materials are present on the ground with an increase discrimination capability of different target species. The TFM proposed is a study of the possibility of using supercontinuum source in space applications and the development of a lab setup using a supercontinuum source and a spectrometer in order to get the absorption lines of water or of some gases.
