Paper Abstract

The possibility of using OPO and two-cascade OPO-SRS converters is considered both for the generation of probing pulses and for the amplification of radiation scattered in the atmosphere. The lidars based on such combined use of OPO and OPO-SRS converters are protected against the background radiation and ensure the probing distance in the IR a few times greater than when the conventional lidars are employed. It is shown that the use of two-cascade parametric and multicascade SRS image amplifiers will make it possible to record the spatial distribution of ultrashort radiation attenuated by a factor of 1013 divided by 1014, having an energy of order 1 mJ, for about 102 image cells.
