Remote measurement of chemical warfare agents by differential absorption CO2 lidar
- 115 Downloads
The possibilities of remote sensing of chemical warfare agents by the differential absorption method are analyzed. The CO2 laser emission lines suitable for sensing chemical warfare agents with accounting for disturbing absorption by water vapor were chosen. The detection range of chemical warfare agents is obtained for a lidar based on CO2 laser. Factors influencing upon the sensing range have been analyzed.
