Paper Abstract

Tunable solid-state laser technology is rapidly expanding coverage of the electro-magnetic spectrum between 0.20 and 14.0 μm, while dramatically increasing efficiency, lifetime and reliability. The status of several laser technologies will be presented which will be available in the decade of the 1990's to conduct scientific measurements of planetary atmospheres and features of planetary surfaces from orbiting spacecraft.
