Wall-E Lidar

The ReACT group of IAASARS has developed “WALL-E” lidar, a novel polarization lidar system capable of monitoring possible dust orientation and microphysical properties. WALL-E emits linearly- and elliptically-polarized light and detects the linear and circular polarization of the backscattered light from the dust particles in the atmosphere. It also employs scanning capabilities so as to provide more information on the dust orientation and microphysical properties. The system is designed based on the high quality standards of the European lidar network EARLINET, in the framework of ERC-COG program D-TECT.

About Us

ReACT stands for “Remote sensing of Aerosols, Clouds and Trace gases”, to describe the research focus of the respective research team led by Dr. Vassilis Amiridis. ReACT consists of highly motivated scientists within the field of Atmospheric Sciences, combining a number of Post-doc researchers, Ph.D. and M.Sc. students as well as other research and technical staff, using the resources, infrastructure and experience of the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS).
