Paper Abstract

A ground-based DIAL sensor for demonstrating vertical atmospheric water vapor meas-urements, in the 940 nm region, is described. The system is based on a tunable Nd:glass laser and a hydrogen Raman Cell, and has the potential for being suitable for Space applications. Preliminary results in the development of the 940 nm transmitter and atmospheric backscatter measurements are presented.
