A Possible Fourier Transform Laser Spectrometer for Tunable Lidar and Laboratory Spectroscopy

Volume 36, Number 3 (June 1982) Page 329-330

Hirschfeld, Tomas

One of the suggested uses of tunable lasers has been lidar measurements of remote absorption in the atmosphere, by sending out a laser beam and observing the atmospheric backscatter from it with a receiver. By tuning the laser over an absorption line, the variation in signal due to atmospheric absorption by an atmospheric constituent can be determined.
