Paper Abstract

A dual wavelength micro pulse polarization lidar system is designed, in which Nd:YAG laser at 1064nm and 532nm is employed as the exciting source, to research the depolarization ratio, the lidar ratio and the angstrom coefficient of aerosols. Numerical simulations are performed with the standard atmospheric model to verify the detection ability of the system. The simulation results show that the lidar system is capable of detecting the depolarization ratio of aerosols up to a height larger than 6 km at night and 2 km in the daytime with a sigal to noise ratio of 10. In the meantime, the lidar system can also be used to detect the angstrom coefficient, and can provide important scientific data for studies of the relastionship among these parameters.
