Abstract
IN 2005 a lidar instrument will be launched aboard the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) satellite for measuring the three dimensional distribution of atmospheric clouds and aerosols. A key part of the lidar instrument is a 532 nm tunable etalon, which allows daytime operation. The design rationale and measured optical performance of the etalon and its mounting sytem during assembly and integration are presented.
