Paper Abstract

The ENEA lidar ground-based station of Brasimone has been recently upgraded in order to perform resonance atmospheric Na measurements. A high resolutin dye laser was inserted in the existing transmitter optical line, and a Na vapor cell (MOF) magneto optical filter) was integrated in the receiver in order to scan the dye laser over the Na fine structure doublet. A complete set of laboratory measurements have been performed, before sending the optical beam through the open atmosphere, in order to characterize the MOF (Na vapor, temperature and magnetic field intensity) and to determine the experimental settings that will be used in the final system configuration.
