Abstract
A prototype of multiwavelength lidar system for investigation of atmospheric aerosol particles distribution is presented. This technique consists on relation between of the cross section for the light scattering and the particle size as well as the scattered radiation wavelength. Our lidar working simultaneously on several wavelengths is based on the system with a Ti:Sa laser, generating the light pulses at λ=850 and λ=750 nm, which are also frequency doubled and tripled. Additionally a Nd:YAG laser, working on the fundamental and on its second harmonics (λ=1064 and λ=532 nm), is also used. Special algorithms for retrieving the aerosol particles size distribution from the lidar signals were elaborated. The system was applied during a field campaign in Karkonosze Mountains.
