Abstract

In this paper we determine the coherent response to a 100-μm diam spinning wire as a function of its position within the focal volume of a 10.6-μm coherent Doppler lidar and generate SNR contours both transverse to and along the system line of sight. Application of the contours to single-particle scattering is discussed.
