We report on the development of a new pulsed fiber laser source at 1645.5 nm, based on stimulated Raman amplification. This laser source is intended to be used in a future lidar system, dedicated to methane gas leak monitoring in the vicinity of industrial facilities. In this paper we discuss reasons for choosing the 1645.5 nm wavelength, and then we present the two-stage amplification architecture of our fiber laser source under development. Recent experimental results are provided and perspectives are drawn.
