Paper Abstract

During the past several years laser techniques for spectroscopic detection of trace atmospheric species have been proposed, developed, and implemented in field-demonstration programs. The spectral region utilized has ranged from the near ultraviolet to the mid-infrared. Measurements have been performed at ground level and above to the upper atmosphere. The operating principles have included direct absorption, resonance scattering, resonance fluorescence, and Raman scattering. This paper concentrates on the application of absorption spectroscopy to the detection of molecular pollutants, stressing some of the important properties of longpath and laser-radar systems.
