Lidar Measurement of the Power of Raman Light Scattering by Hydrogen Molecules


We analyze the effect of spectral line width of laser radiation and the function width of the lidar spectrum analyzer on the measurement error for the power in Raman light scattering in the sensing of atmospheric hydrogen molecules. Consideration of these factors leads to a decrease in the relative error of power measurement.
