Paper Abstract

A differential absorption lidar (DIAL) and a Doppler wind lidar (DWL) for future ESA mission dedicated to water, vapor, temperature, and wind velocity measurements are described. A feasibility study of all solid state technologies for spaceborne DIAL and DWL systems in the spectral range of 1.5 to 10 microns is presented. Topics discussed include the spectral line selection in the above mentioned spectral range, the performance parametric analyses of all lidar candidates, and a subsystem study that took into account the payload architecture and optical and thermal constraints.
