Paper Abstract

The paper performs experimental issues from development and optimization of the selective cavity configuration in the electric-discharge DF laser for the lidar intended to monitor air methane. Using the selective resonator principle was shown to provide optimal feedback simultaneously at two selected wavelengths and allow us to form probing pulses consisting of in-time sequence of on- and off-lines. It was demonstrated experimentally that application of such a probing pulse would make it possible to build a simple and positivei-operation emitter-pickup system for lidar, provide the least mass/dimension values and consumed energy, and to enhance to operation safety of the entire complex.
