Paper Abstract

Raman lidar sensing of gaseous molecules in atmosphere is of great importance for environmental and scientific purposes due to its concentration measurements possibilities. Back scattering vibrational Raman lidar equation computer simulation for hydrocarbon molecules with copper vapor lasers have been made to choose optimal lidar system for studied ethane, ethylene and ethylmercaptane molecules monitoring in atmosphere at ranging distance up to 5 km. Sunlight background power were calculated to determine the maximum ranging distances for these molecules maximum permissible concentration level detection.
