Ultrashort Laser Pulse Phenomena balances theory and applications of ultrafast optical pulses, with detailed descriptions of experimental configurations and surveys of relevant data from the literature, demonstrating how the technology can be applied in areas such as spectroscopy, medical imaging, electromagnetism, optics, and quantum physics. The third edition streamlines the discussion of ultrashort pulse fundamentals and their main application fields. Nonlinear optics is revised and re-organized, from most general transient concepts, leading through successive approximations to the classical concepts of nonlinear susceptibility. Sections on recent developments such as comb spectroscopy, attosecond science and corresponding laser sources have been added or considerably extended. Showing how abstract models can be put into practice, this book is an easy-to-understand guide to designing and constructing femtosecond and attosecond systems and applications, suitable for engineers and scientists working in the areas of optics, spectroscopy, optical imaging, photochemistry, and ultrafast science and engineering

Review quote

"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
