Backscatter / Depolarization / Raman

Customized Vertical LIDARs

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 (see below).

 

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 - see here).

Key Features

 

- High energy lasers (30, 60 or 90 mJ at 355nm - up to 330mJ at 1064nm)

 

- Large telescopes (200, 300 or 400 mm as standard)

- High energy per pulse and large receivers for better data quality and increased range

- Choice of up to 8 wavelengths with upgrades available

- Telescopes designed by Raymetrics specifically for lidars, increasing signal efficiency by as much as 40% compared to off-the-shelf telescopes

- Optical quality glass for emitter and receiver windows to prevent chromatic aberration

- Simultaneous analogue and photon counting modes

- Complete software package provided

- Flexible networking options - fully operable from remote networked workstations via built-in Ethernet port or LAN connection (controllable even over WiFi, such as from a laptop, tablet, or mobile phone)

- Real-time data display

- Weatherproof enclosure with climate control options for almost all environmental - conditions

- Robust, industrial design

- 12 month warranty

- 3 day installation and training course on site as standard

- Company certified to ISO 9001:2008 standard

- Designed to be compliant with all EARLINET (European LIDAR network) recommendations for LIDAR design
