Paper Abstract

Three potential techniques for making wind measurements from space are discussed, and coherent detection Doppler lidar chosen for further consideration. The impact of different laser transmitter wavelengths on the design of a Doppler lidar are considered. Specifically covered in the paper are coherent detection systems based on the 2.1μm Tm:Ho:YAG laser and the 9.1μm 12C18O2 laser. Both systems engineering aspects and subsystem impacts are discussed.
