Pulsed, tunable alexandrite lasers in combination with harmonic generators and Raman wavelength shifter form a powerful and versatile tool for lidar (light detection and ranging) remote sensing. Such an integrated laser system can generate any wavelength from ultraviolet to infrared with the necessary beam qualities required for lidar measurement. This paper presents the development of injection seeded alexandrite ring lasers and linear cavity alexandrite lasers that can be deployed in ocean-atmosphere lidar remote sensing.
