Detection of the local volume of chemical elements on extended atmospheric paths: Model experiment


Laboratory experiments on the detection of vapors of chemical compounds (acetone and hydrogen peroxide) localized at a small length of 0.62 m on a model atmospheric path of 220 m have been performed. The experimental and calculated data have been compared. The possible fields of the application of the designed experimental bench are discussed.
