Ultrashort Laser Pulse Phenomena serves as an introduction to the phenomena of ultrashort laser pulses and describes how this technology can be applied in areas such as spectroscopy, medical imaging, electromagnetism, optics, and quantum physics. Combining the principles with experimental techniques, the book serves as a guide to designing and constructing femtosecond systems. The second edition has updated and expanded its content, and includes more examples of ultrashort sources and a more comprehensive fundamentals chapter. Diagnostic techniques and applications involving sensors, mode-locked lasers, and imaging have been fully revised to include current technologies. Written in a tutorial style, this book is suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate students as well as engineers and scientists working in the areas of optics, spectroscopy, optical imaging, photochemistry, and ultrafast science and engineering.
Experimental researchers in physics, engineering, biology and chemistry; graduate students.

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 ones reference library. Raymond F. Lanzsafame, Photomedicine and Laser Surgery
