Laser depth measurement using picosecond resolution time correlated single-photon counting

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The use of time-of-flight (TOF) system for distance measurement using low numbers of integrated photon returns was investigated. The technique uses the time-correlated single-photon counting. The results showed that a resolution of 3 mm can be achieved with only 10 photons scattered from the target, when an overall instrumental FWHM response of 34 ps was used. Maximum signal-to-background ratio, defined as the ratio of peak height to the background, was found to be essential for optimum exploitation of this technique.
