Paper Abstract

Laser monitoring of atmospheric and polluting gas concentrations in the atmosphere as well as laser detection and imaging are still need in sensitive and simple in design and operation lidar instruments especially in those which can perform the above both types of measurements simultaneously. Autodyne lidars appear to be quite candidate to this end. Reported are results of design of a laboratory prototype of cw CO2 multipurpose lidar based on suggested earlier approach performing the both tasks, i.e. for path gas analysis and remote determination of optical and dynamical characteristics of a retroreflector (distant mirror, aerosol layer or topographical target).
