Paper Abstract

Small carrying aerosol lidar in which is used small copper vapour laser "Malachite" as source of sounding optical pulses is described. The advantages of metal vapour laser and photon counting mode in acquisition system of lidar gave ability to get record results: when lidar has dimensions (1 x .6 x .3 m) and weight ( 65 kg), it provides the sounding of air industrial pollutions at up to 20 km range in scanning sector 90°. Power feed is less than 800 Wt. Lidar can be disposed as stationary so on the car, helicopter, light plane. Results of location of smoke tails and city smog in situ experiments are cited. Showed advantages of work of acquisition system in photon counting mode when dynamic range of a signal is up to six orders.
