Reviews

This book is a well-researched review of X-ray lasers....An enormous amount of work world-wide has been done over the last five years and it is fair to say that much of it is reviewed here....In summary, the book is recommended for library purchase as a thorough review of the field, albeit somewhat unbalanced in its level of presentation. It should also be a most useful resource for specialists in the field of short wavelength radiation.
--AUSTRALIAN PHYSICIST


This book is a most welcome monograph on the subject of x-ray lasers....There is a well balanced blend of fundamental laser and plasma physics considerations with the particularly highlighted topics relating to x-ray lasers and their applications...it represents a valuable and timely addition to existing literature on lasers.
