Radiation tests

The LEMON consortium has conducted the radiation tests for the most critical devices used within the lidar system. For the non-linear Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) crystals and the highly non-linear fibers the post radiation tests have been conducted, too. The results of those have proven that the materials used for the airborne demonstrator are also […]
