Om boka

This comprehensive handbook gives a fully updated guide to lasers and laser technologies, including the complete range of their technical applications. This forth volume covers laser applications in the medical, metrology and communications fields.


Key Features:


* Offers a complete update of the original, bestselling work, including many brand-new chapters.


* Deepens the introduction to fundamentals, from laser design and fabrication to host matrices for solid-state lasers, energy level diagrams, hosting materials, dopant energy levels, and lasers based on nonlinear effects.


* Covers new laser types, including quantum cascade lasers, silicon-based lasers, titanium sapphire lasers, terahertz lasers, bismuth-doped fiber lasers, and diode-pumped alkali lasers.


* Discusses the latest applications, e.g., lasers in microscopy, high-speed imaging, attosecond metrology, 3D printing, optical atomic clocks, time-resolved spectroscopy, polarization and profile measurements, pulse measurements, and laser-induced fluorescence detection.


* Adds new sections on laser materials processing, laser spectroscopy, lasers in imaging, lasers in environmental sciences, and lasers in communications.


This handbook is the ideal companion for scientists, engineers, and students working with lasers, including those in optics, electrical engineering, physics, chemistry, biomedicine, and other relevant areas.

Om forfatteren

Chunlei Guo is a full professor in The Institute of Optics at University of Rochester. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Connecticut in 1999, and was later named one of the University's "40 Under 40 Outstanding Alumni." His postdoctoral training was at Los Alamos National Laboratory from 1999 to 2001, where his work was awarded the Postdoctoral Publication Prize in Experimental Sciences. He joined the faculty of University of Rochester in 2001. Dr. Guo is a pioneer in femtosecond laser processing of materials and the study of laser-matter interactions at high intensities. His research includes work on transforming metals into functional materials with desired properties such as being water repellent, water attracting, and highly absorbent, and has been featured by the media, including The New York Times, CNN, Time Magazine, BBC, USA Today, and Newsweek. Professor Guo has taught courses at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels, including Principles of Lasers, Optics Laboratory, Optoelectronics: Laser Systems, and Modern Laser Technology. He is an elected Fellow for both American Physical Society and Optical Society of America (OSA). He has authored well over 100 refereed journal articles and has been playing an active role in the scientific community, including as editor of the Nature journal Light: Science & Applications and associate editor of OSA's Optics Express, and serving on various program and organizing committees.
