Lidar techniques, based on the time-of-flight principle, have been widely employed in atmospheric remote sensing since decades. The Scheimpflug lidar (SLidar) technique, which employing robust high-power laser diodes as light sources and highly integrated CCD/CMOS image sensor as detectors, has been recently developed for various atmospheric applications. Range-resolved atmospheric backscattering signal is obtained by capturing the backscattering imaging of transmitted continuous-wave laser beam based on the Scheimpflug principle. This paper reported recent advances in aerosol and trace gas monitoring by employing the SLidar techniques.
