Develop interferometric High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) receiver component technology that will reduce mass, power, volume, risk, and cost for the Aerosols-Clouds-Ecosystems (ACE) Decadal Survey mission. This interferometer will be a significant advance over the current HSRL-2 interferometer:
More robust frequency locking (one degree of freedom vs. 3 in current design)
Higher long-term calibration stability (increased accuracy in science retrievals)
Allows simpler supporting detectors, electronics, and frequency locking architecture
