Description

Ultrashort Laser Pulse Phenomena, Second Edition serves as an introduction to the phenomena of ultra short laser pulses and describes how this technology can be used to examine problems in areas such as electromagnetism, optics, and quantum mechanics. Ultrashort Laser Pulse Phenomena combines theoretical backgrounds and experimental techniques and will serve as a manual on designing and constructing femtosecond ("faster than electronics") systems or experiments from scratch. Beyond the simple optical system, the various sources of ultrashort pulses are presented, again with emphasis on the basic concepts and how they apply to the design of particular sources (dye lasers, solid state lasers, semiconductor lasers, fiber lasers, and sources based on frequency conversion).

Review Text

"Although very detailed information is presented, the authors provide the information in an easily-read and concise format, with clear verbal descriptions, figures, and bibliographic references at the end of each chapter. This text is written at the level of senior undergraduate students in physics, chemistry or engineering, but provides ample descriptions for those less mathematically inclined. It is certainly a welcome addition to one's reference library. - Raymond F. Lanzsafame, Photomedicine and Laser Surgery
