    Hi,

    I was just wondering if it is possible to take apart a
    laser range finder and connect the laser to the input of
    a fiberoptic coil and then connect the output of the coil
    to the rangefinder photodiode? If the coil length is
    100 meters, and it is rotating in the direction of the
    light travel then the reported distance measurement should be
    proportionately less? Or is it the frequency of the light that
    will change? In that case using a phase comparator range finder
    would work I guess?

    cheers,
    Jamie
