Workshop: Trends and Developments in Laser Based Distance Metrology

Long distance measurement techniques based on ranging are reaching accuracies of tenths of millimeters over hundreds of meters. One important driver for this development is the advent and broader availability of more robust and reliable laser sources. Nevertheless, several obstacles have to be overcome to promote the technology towards further frontiers in accuracies, and of similar importance, towards broader applicability for the challenges in manufacturing and monitoring.
