Paper Abstract

We report on several developments in solid state lasers and nonlinear optics specifically for applications in remote sensing. In the area of UV sources for ozone monitoring, we have developed an efficient, third-harmonic, tunable Ti:sapphire-laser-based source. For long-range, eyesafe detection of aerosols, we report a high-energy optical parametric oscillator (OPO) driven by a flashlamp-pumped, Q-switched Nd:YLF laser. Finally, for mid-infrared DIAL, we have developed a Tandem-OPO that converts a common Nd-doped laser into a tunable source capable of providing wavelengths in the range 1500-5500 nm and 8000-12000 nm.
