Random modulation cw lidar using new random sequence.


New modulation codes are presented for a random modulation cw lidar. One characteristic of these modulation codes is that for very noisy background conditions, the signal-to-noise ratio is improved by using these new sequences, and is better than for the maximum-length sequence (the M-sequence) which is commonly used as the modulation code.
