Project teaser

Acronym: LEMON

The LEMON project aims at developing a Lidar emitter for space applications to monitor greenhouse gases and water vapour. LEMON will improve the accuracy of climate change analysis.

Based on innovative photonics components, LEMON will develop a cutting-edge Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) sensor concept that can either measure CO2, CH4 or water vapour stable isotopes in a rugged and compact architecture that matches mini-satellite missions size requirements.
