Paper Abstract

The spectral characteristics of an alexandrite laser used for making water vapor DIAL measurements are evaluated. The optical servo-system used to lock the laser wavelength on a water vapor absorption line is described. A brief description of the DIAL system is given and the data obtained with this lidar during flight tests in March 1990 are also presented.
