Paper Abstract

The prototype of He-Ne / He-Xe laser system for methane detection using differential absorption of radiation backscattered from topographic targets is described. Using radiation of the wavelengths 3.39 μm and 3.51 μm, the measurement of CH4 at the distance of 50 m was carried out. To increase the range and accuracy of measurement, the Cassegrain optics and lasers of higher power can be used. The lasers have four-channel construction structure and they are excited with RF current.
