Abstract

A fast, range imaging, eye-safe laser scanner which uses a synchronized scanning geometry is described. The device operates at a 1.5-μm wavelength and incorporates an Er doped fiber laser as well as an InGaAs position sensitive detector. Factors influencing device performances are presented along with range images obtained at 1.5 μm.
