Differential absorption lidar measurements require coherent radiation with high peak and average power in the nanosecond time regime at wavelengths coincident with specific absorption features of the atmospheric trace species to be measured. Often these wavelengths do not coincide with readily available laser lines. Optical parametric oscillators and amplifiers can efficiently convert light from fixed frequency sources into broadly tunable laser radiation providing a generic approach to developing versatile lidar transmitters. This technology has been advanced at DLR to a stage of maturity suitable for airborne and spaceborne applications.
