Abstract

A novel technique of lidar for atmospheric gas detection by use of stimulated Raman gain spectroscopy without any tunable laser is proposed. Detection sensitivity and detectable range are estimated on the basis of the lidar equation for CO2, CH4, and H2in the atmosphere. The feasibility study clearly shows that the technique has a potential for application to lidar and that, in addition, the construction of the system is simpler than those of traditional differential absorption lidars.
