Lidar Atmospheric Sensing Experiment
NASA's Lidar Atmospheric Sensing Experiment (LASE) system is an airborne Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) system used to measure water vapor, aerosols, and clouds throughout the troposphere. The Differential Absorption Lidar uses the backscatter of four simultaneous laser wavelengths through zenith and nadir quartz windows to measure the vertical profiles of ozone (O3) and aerosols/clouds.
