The ESA Mobile Raman LIDAR was procured by TEC-MME in 2007. The instrument was installed at a van and complemented by a Microprobes Sun Photometer

The EMORAL LIDAR observations at the PolWET site in Rzecin, Poland, on 10 June 2019. The scattering ratio (top), quasi-particle depolarization ratio (middle), and backscatter colour ratio (bottom) derived at 532 nm with 30 m spatial and 30 s temporal resolutions

Status and Progress

The original architecture of the instrument was a basic 1 a+2 ß+ 1d : 355nm polar,355nm crosspolar, 387nm, 532nm
 In 2014 it was upgraded with the installation of additional channels : 1 a+2 ß+ 2d : 355nm polar,355nm crosspolar, 387nm, 532nm polar, 532nm cross polar

In 2017 it shall become a 2 a+3 ß+ 2d, with the introduction of 1064 nm and 607 nm

In addition to the instrument upgrades, in 2016 the van was also replaced and customised to support better the instrument

Optics & Opto-Electroncis Laboratory (OOEL)
 The Optics & Opto-Electroncis Laboratory (OOEL) is a joint laboratory of the Optics (TEC-MMO) and Opto-Electroncis (TEC-MME) sections at ESTEC. The OOEL provides expert advice with a state-of-the-art ISO17025 accredited laboratory:

  • to evaluate promising novel technologies prior to industrial activities
  • to independently assess the outcome of industrial activities in support to ESA’s projects and Research & Development efforts
  • to experimentally support root-cause-analysis for system or component level malfunctions
  • to provide, to maintain hands-on experience and competence of staff and trainees (Young Graduate Trainees and interns)

Since 2007, it took part in the following Campaigns

  • 2010 -Cloud Studies (Netherlands)
  • 2011 -Acemed,CarbonExp,Aegean Game Campaigns (Greece)
  • 2012 -Hyflex (Germany & Czech Republic)
  • 2013 -Sen2Exp (France)
  • 2014 -CHARADMExp (Greece)
