Abstract : The specific tasks which were conducted during FY82 for this research program consisted of the following: (1) the initial development of a heterodyne-detection, differential-absorption LIDAR (DIAL) system, (2) the development of a computerized data acquisition and processing system for range-resolved, heterodyne-detection DIAL measurements, (3) preliminary range-resolved, heterodyne-detection DIAL measurements of atmospheric species, and (4) a study of the potential application of the continuously tunable Co:MgF2 IR laser for remote sensing of airfield pollutants and gaseous species.
