Paper Abstract

ATLID is a spaceborne backscattering LIDAR using a solid- state Nd-YAG laser (1.064 micrometers wavelength). The paper describes the instrument's Detection Chain breadboard which has been designed and tested under an ESA contract. The Detection Chain is based on an Avalanche PhotoDiode/transimpedance preamplifier hybrid (Detection Front-End Assembly) included on a Detector Module and a Detection Electronics. Main goal aimed at proving the feasibility of the SNR performance and of the clouds backscattered signal detection and datation. The DFEA characterization and the flight design representativity were also a major purpose of this work.
