In laser based remote sensing, atmospheric constituents are identified and their concentration is determined through observation of the characteristic interaction of the laser radiation with specific atmospheric constituents. Techniques such as resonance fluorescence and resonance Raman scattering involve tuning the laser to a frequency characteristic of the sample and observing the radiation from the sample at the same or a slightly different frequency. The temporal behavior of the observed signal contains the information on the spatial distribution of the sample and the intensity indicates its concentration. For general application of this method, the laser radiation must be tunable over a wide range.
