Abstract

A laboratory experiment is discussed which simulates lidar fluorosensing of oil films on the sea surface at UV wavelengths. Three different mixtures of lasing gases, KrF, XeCl and N2, were used while a fourth wavelength was given by a dye laser. It turns out that films having a thickness as low as 0.01 μm can be detected; the limiting factor resides mainly in the background fluorescence of water. Best results have been obtained with the XeCl excimer laser.
