Abstract

New developments in the areas of narrowband tunable excimer lasers, high-resolution high-rejection optical filters, and wavelength measurement devices are considered for application to the remote sensing of atmospheric hydroxyl radicals. The conclusion is that an increase in the SNR of 104 could readily be gained through the use of these new devices. Also, considerable reductions in size and electrical energy consumption could be realized.
