The latest developments in laser based sensing and free space laser communication.
Sophisticated laser systems are increasingly being used for information gathering and sharing since they can satisfy many critical needs in sensing and high bandwidth free space optical (FSO) communications. We are coming into the age where laser systems are a viable competitor to RF systems for many applications. This meeting reports on the latest use of lasers in diverse fields such as environmental sensing, remote imaging, close-in inspection and medical diagnostics. Common challenges to both systems, such as atmospheric effects, are also considered. In addition to applications and systems, this meeting also covers the enabling technologies that are often common in both sensing and communication. Advances in sources and waveform/wavefront modulation techniques, receivers, optical apertures, and post-detection processing schemes are all required and are subjects of this meeting.
