Raman lidar, photon counter, hydrogen gas, remote gas detection
A Raman lidar system is able to detect the range of gas distribution and measure the hydrogen gas concentration remotely. This paper discusses the development of a photon counting Raman lidar system for remotely measuring the hydrogen gas concentration. To verify the developed photon counting Raman lidar system, experiments were carried out in outdoor conditions. As the results indicate, the developed photon counting Raman lidar system is possible to measure 0.66 to 100 vol% hydrogen gas concentrations at a distance of 30 m. In addition, the measuring average error measured 0.54% and the standard deviation is 2.42% at a distance of 30 m.
