Paper Abstract

The article deals with the problem of developing a technique and creating equipment for regular observations of stationary variations in the vertical distribution of the stratosphere temperature. As a methodical basis, it is proposed to use a method for measuring the temperature of the atmosphere from the ratio of intensities of the sections of the purely rotational spectrum of spontaneous Raman scattering on nitrogen and oxygen molecules. A block diagram of a lidar based on the use of a single diffraction polychromator in combination with the transmission of optical signals by optical fibers is given. An experimental estimation of the total quantum efficiency of the photon counting system is carried out. The obtained data made it possible to clarify the technical parameters of the lidar and to increase the reliability of the estimate.
