Paper Abstract

Atmospheric absorption and scattering phenomena of optical waves might be used for verify the type, the concentration, the distance and the thickness of the absorbed/scattered gases/pollutants. The active detection techniques of atmospheric gases/pollutants with a laser, briefly introduced in our project, are still the most modern and reliable methods. With those techniques may be located and measured targets in a molecular or bigger size to achieve an accurate remote sensing of the atmospheric gases/pollutants. For the photo-receivers of these detectors we propose a new special optical input converter that corresponds the intensity of the incident optical radiation to the frequency of an electronic pulsed signal, and then this signal manipulation might become with a common receiver of radio-electric signals.
