Abstract : The patent comprises a tunable dye laser of Cassegrainian collecting optics for receiving the reflected laser beam, a series of optical components, and a diode array. One of the optical components used by the receiver portion of the present invention is the rotatable mirror of the tunable laser. In this approach, the mirror is the only moving part. It operates to synchronously tune the laser and scan the returning beam across the diode array.
