Paper Abstract

A novel ultra-narrow Na Faraday vapor filter was developed and is in use with our Na temperature lidar system for daytime measurements of the atmospheric temperature near the mesopause. The first 34 hour continuous observation was carried out from 1 pm, Oct. 10 to 11 pm Oct. 12, 1995, terminated by clouds. Signal to background ratio at high noon was about 15 at Na D2a peak frequency.
