Chapters will provide self-contained treatment of the topic as much as possible to allow the reader to go directly to the appropriate chapter to deal with a particular topic of concern. This sharp focus is necessary to maintain the emphasis, and to make this a practical reference. The knowledge and experience will integrate aspects of laser oscillators, laser amplifiers, laser systems, engineering of rugged laser cavities, design and engineering of laser-based instrumentation, and design of highly reliable laser systems for material processing applications.

Review quote

"...a well-organized and well-written book...The reader gains insight and understanding into the selection of components and the trade-offs involved in creating turnable laser optics. I enjoyed the book and commend Francis J. Duarte on another addition to his already impressive resume in optical science" - Optics and Photonics News, July/August 2005
