Paper Abstract

The requirements of range resolved DIAL in the infrared are briefly reviewed. It is argued that a system might advantageously be constructed with a single highly tunable laser source that can operate simultaneously in more than one mode provided the mode spacing available is of order the width of the molecular absorption line being used. An experimental facility is described that enables different excitation, gas flow and optical cavity configurations to be tested in the context of a multiatmospheric pressure CO2 laser.
