Paper Abstract

Laser setup for mobile long-range DIAL lidar is developed in the Institute of Laser Physics (Novosibirsk, Russia). It includes two tunable pulse-periodic TEA CO2 lasers operated on 85 emission lines. Energy and peak power of a laser pulses exceed 10 J and 100 MW accordingly. Width of laser pulses is 30 ns. The lasers emit a pair of optical pulses on different wavelengths in a spectral range of 9.15 - 10.86 micrometers with pulse repetition frequency of 0.1 - 2 Hz and temporary delay between pulses of 0.2 - 3 ms. The laser emission is multimode and its polarization is linear. The estimations of developed lidar monitoring range for various mode of operation are carried out. Lidar can be mounted inside of mini-bus. The dimensions of lidar frame is 2250 X 840 X 1500 mm, total weight is approximately 600 kg, electrical consumption is about 2 kVA (220 VAC/50 (60) Hz).
