Abstract
The theory of differential absorption lidar (DIAL) systems relevant to range-resolved area monitoring of pollutants is reviewed. A numerical example based on a hydrazine and ethylene monitoring concept is presented and used to show the superiority of high-PRF, low pulse energy heterodyne detection DIAL systems over low-PRF, high pulse energy direct detection DIAL systems in the area monitoring application. Size, complexity, and measurement timeline trade-offs on choice of system architecture are discussed.
