Abstract
A Na mesospheric density lidar or ‘‘guide star’’ illuminator can be tuned by visually observing the pattern of laser-induced fluorescence inside a Na illumination lamp soon after it has been turned off. Optimum tuning occurs when the fluorescence is trapped inside the lamp and appears to fill the bulb as a whole.
