Paper Abstract

We present a holographic Raman lidar system, which can provide temperature profiles of the atmosphere. The Raman lidar has the potential to operate continuously over a 24 hr period, with a predicted accuracy of 1% at altitudes greater than 20 km. The distinguishing feature of our lidar that allows 24 hr measurements is the holographic optical element. The holographic optical element can resolve individual rotational Raman lines at high efficiency. Furthermore, this high resolution substantially increases the signal to noise of the lidar system, thereby allowing daytime measurements with out appreciable increase in error.
