Paper Abstract

A lidar system based on Er-laser with eye-safe radiation (the wavelength is 1.54 mm) has been created and tested for detection of smoke and other pollution in air. Both theoretical estimations and preliminary experiments show that the needed signal registration may be possible for distances of 10-12 km depending on smoke scattering parameters.
