A compact CO2laser source has been developed at the ENEA remote sensing laboratory, with the aim of emitting two alternate wavelengths in rapid succession along the same line for use in lidar/DIAL applications. The solutions adopted in the new design successfully overcome many of the problems previously encountered running a lidar test site. The overlapped emission of two different wavelengths beams from a single cavity is a major improvement on the traditional systems which relied on two separate laser sources operating on different lines. Additional upgrading of the receiver apparatus and of the acquisition electronics have led to further improvements in the performance of the complete lidar system. The new design system represents a significant step towards the development of a compact fully mobile lidar.
