Abacus Laser develops and distributes lidar modules for wind measurement. These include a narrow-band reference laser, a pulsed single-frequency laser and detection by optical interference (heterodyne detection).
Our Modul LiTra S is based on optical fiber technology from the telecommunications industry and is thus particularly robust. With our lidar we can perform wind measurements with a typical range of 2 to 4 kilometers. In favorable conditions, clouds can be detected in up to 20km distance.
The corresponding data sheet can be found here.
Here are some example measurements.
Currently we are planning a lidar module based on 2.1 μm solid-state laser technology for wind measurements with a range of 30 to 50 km (horizontal).
Abacus Laser specialises in the development of customer-specific special solutions in the areas of laser and optical remote sensing. We offer assistance if you need a laser with special characteristics, such as a particular wavelength or an especially narrow-bandwidth laser.
Our fields of specialisation are:
Wind lidar modules
Single-frequency lasers (operation on a single longitudinal mode)
Pulsed (Q-switched) lasers, especially single-frequency Q-switched lasers
Lasers operating on special wavelengths, e.g. in the eye-safe spectral range >1,4 μm, but also in the visible and UV
Diode-pumped solid-state lasers of high power and efficiency
Lasers with diffraction-limited beam quality (M² close to 1.0), even at high powers
And, of course, also lasers with a combination of these properties
Abacus Laser offers consulting for laser and optical remote sensing. We will support you from project planning to implementation, from design to the final laser or lidar system. We will assist you with regard to specific problems as well as with strategic planning.
Our team can also come to your laboratory to assist with the actual experimental implementation.
Abacus Laser does not only develop new lasers, but also offers assistance with repair, maintenance and modification of existing lasers and lidar systems; regardless of whether you are working with commercial systems or with laboratory systems and prototypes.
