Abstract

It is shown that the thermal distribution of rotational states within a molecular absorption band of a gas can be probed by means of lidar differential absorption to obtain measurements of the gas temperature. A technique for exploiting this is described; and preliminary calculations indicate that, although relatively weak absorptions are involved, sensitivities should be sufficient for profile measurements of temperature in the atmosphere.
