Paper Abstract

Estimations are carried out on creation possibilities of all solid state laser sources capable significantly or fully to solve the problem of the universal Aerosol-Gas Lidar System design. 'Best existing Ho2+:ILF and Nd:YAG lasers supplied with LBO, KTA, KTP, BBO, CLBO, DLAP; GaSe, GaSe:In, AgGaxIn1-xSe2, LiInS2, LiInSe2, AgGaS2, AgGaxIn1-xS2, and HgGa2S4 frequency converters are considered. The investigation results show development of UV to FIR laser source is really to carry out with efficiencies from one-two up to several tens pro cents in several ways.
