The role of atmospheric gases in the absorption of optical radiation has been analyzed in the range 1.5–2.1 mm. Transparency microwindows optimum for laser sensing have been chosen. The Tm–, Ho–, and Nd– ion lasers with frequencies shifted in cells with stimulated Raman scattering are shown to be promising.
