Abstract:

The book considers the theoretical and practical problems of the application of optical quantum generators in contemporary geodetic measurements. It also offers an analysis of completed experiments and describes laser geodetic apparatus and measuring systems and methods. The book is made up of four chapters. The first chapter will familiarize the reader with certain problems connected with the application of optical quantum generators. The second chapter is devoted to the use of lasers in terrestrial range finder systems. Pulse, phase, and interference methods of measuring distances using optical quantum generators are discussed. The third chapter discusses laser systems for measuring large distances to the Earths artificial satellites and to the Moon and gives an analysis of the accuracy of such systems and describe experiments which have been conducted. In the fourth chapter other geodetic applications of optical quantum generators are discussed.
