The possibilities for using the pulsed time-of-flight (TOF) laser radar technique for hot refractory lining measurements are examined, and formulas are presented for calculating the background radiation collected, the achievable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and the measurement resolution. An experimental laser radar device is presented based on the use of a laser diode as a transmitter. Results obtained under real industrial conditions show that a SNR of 10 can be achieved at measurement… CONTINUE READING
