This email is regarding measurement of range resolution in Time Of
Flight (TOF) LADAR systems. I have seen
(http://www.lase.de/produkte/scanner/eld_l_a/en.html) products with
extremely good range resolutions and I have a few related questions:
1. What are the factors that determine and limit the range resolution?
I would think that pulse width is an important factor. Is there any
relation connecting the pulse width to the axial resolution?
2. How do I estimate this value experimentally?
On a related note I'd also like to know what would be the factors that
limit the spatial resolution of such systems.
Any pointers in this regard will be appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
