Raymetrics Research LIDARs (Backscatter, Raman, Depolarization)

Customized Vertical LIDARs

Backscatter / Depolarization / Raman

Raymetrics provides a range of highly customizable backscatter, depolarization and Raman LIDARs, designed to cover almost all of an aerosol LIDAR scientist's requirements. Customers can build their system from a set range of components.

Upgrades, such as the addition of extra wavelengths, can be accounted for in the initial design. Requests for LIDARs from outside the standard range can also be accommodated (such as multiple telescopes and emitters, Differential Absorption LIDARs, etc).

Standard Component Range:

Laser Emission Options (per pulse):
30mJ, 60mJ, 80mJ (at 355nm)
55mJ, 130mJ, 200mJ (at 532nm)
100mJ, 200mJ, 330mJ (at 1064nm)
Others on request
