Abstract

The dependence of the received optical power on the range in optical short-distance radar range finders is calculated by means of the methods of geometrical optics. The calculations are based on a constant intensity of the transmitter-beam cross section and on an ideal thin lens for the receiver optics. The results are confirmed by measurements. Even measurements using a nonideal thick lens system for the receiver optics are in reasonable agreement with the calculations.
