Abstract

Bridger Photonics Inc. (Bridger) proposes developing the most efficient, compact, rugged, low-power consumption and cost-effective UV ozone differential absorption lidar (DIAL) transmitter available. Bridger will demonstrate pulse energies above 0.5 mJ with a goal of 1 mJ/pulse with a pulse repetition frequency of 1 kHz. The proposed transmitter will enable widespread deployment of ozone DIAL systems capable of continuous range-resolved atmospheric ozone measurements from ground-based and airborne platforms to advance NASA's Earth science mission.
