The Greek National Infrastructure Project PANACEA has officialy started on 03/09/2018.
LRSU was recently admitted as Associated Partner of the ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructure) Roadmap for world-class Research Infrastructure, as part of the ACTRIS 2 Project (EU Horizon 2020).
Prof. Alex PAPAYANNIS was elected President of the ICLAS (International Coordination group for Laser Atmospheric Studies) (2015-2021)
Continuous Atmospheric and Air Pollution Measurements, Monitoring of Aerosol, Ozone and Water Vapor using LIDAR/DIAL systems, Real-time data analysis and visualization services, Software development/lidar data processing algorithms, Installation, Upgrade and Re-location of LIDAR/DIAL systems, etc.
The LASER REMOTE SENSING UNIT (LRSU) belongs to the Laboratory of Optoelectronics and Lasers both at the Physics Department of the School of Applied Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Athens, Greece.
The mission of LRSU is to perform high-rated research on various topics of Environmental Sciences, such as Laser Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere, Atmospheric Physics, Air Pollution Monitoring, Atmospheric Optics, UV-B Radiation, Environmental Physics and Global Climate Change Mitigation Studies. Essential highly-rated research is focused on the development of novel pulsed solid state laser sources for Space applications (funded by ESA).
