Abstract : Raman lidar techniques have been discussed theoretically and sensitivities for various pollutants have been predicted. The results of the present real Raman Lidar indicates pollutant levels between 40-300 ppm are the present sensitivities but very realistic projections based on these data suggest sensitivities between 0.53-7 ppm could be reached if nondispersive detection techniques were used.
