Power and Sensitivity Improvement of LDA-Systems by Fiber Amplifiers
A new concept is presented where fiber amplifiers are used in fiber optical LDA-systems as booster amplifier to magnify the laser power in the measuring volume as well as preamplifier to increase the sensitivity of detector units.
