Abstract
We report on an all-solid-state rapidly tunable pulsed coherent 6-10 μm light source achieved in an optical parametric oscillator (OPO) pumped with an electronically tuned Cr:ZnSe laser and its application to lidar remote sensing for environmental detection. We designed a lidar system using the 6-10 μm light source and a telescope with a primary mirror of 50 cm and a high-efficient HgCdTe detector. The lidar system would be a valuable system in the measurement of chemical agents in the 100-300 m.
