Optical and infrared transfer function of the Lageos retroreflector arrayThe transfer function of the retroreflector array carried by the LAGEOS satellite (1976 39A) was computed at three wavelengths: 5230, 6943, and 106000 A. The range correction is given for extrapolating laser range measurements to the center of gravity of the satellite. The reflectivity of the array was calculated for estimating laser-echo signal strengths.
