Through the use of lidar, various details of atmospheric composition can be discerned. The National Center for Atmospheric Research developed an eye-safe lidar implementation for atmospheric investigation. Using stimulated Raman scattering (a third-order nonlinear process) the instrument output is eye-safe at approximately 1.5 μm. The instrument has a range of up to 9 km. It also has performance and durability advantages over many previously reported eye-safe lidar configurations. Eye-safe operation is necessary to broaden the available locations for measurements, including more populated areas and near airports.
