The Lufft CHM 15k ceilometer is a simple, one-wavelength backscatter lidar. Within its operating range of up to 15 kilometers it reliably detects multiple cloud layers, cirrus clouds, and aerosol layers. Excellent signal performance is achieved by a stable wavelength, narrow line width microchip Nd:YAG laser operating at 1064 nm. It allows an efficient daylight suppression and minimised temperature fluctuations. The used pulse energy and frequency of the laser results in a eye-safe operating mode and an instrument classification as laser class 1M product. Furthermore, the CHM 15k is distinguished by a user-friendly design and easy handling, both extremely important for unattended and continuous operation. Either being used as sophisticated aerosol research instrument or being integrated in a larger networking operation, the CHM 15k is a state-of-the-art solution for today´s manifold requirements for atmospheric research.
