Measurement of the Power of Elastic Scattering of Atmospheric Aerosol by a Physical Lidar


The influence of laser radiation linewidth on the operation of monostatic aerosol lidar for atmosphere sensing is studied. The relative error of measurements of the power of an elastic backscattering signal in the direction of the lidar at sensing distances of up to 5 km is estimated.
