Chemical and Biochemical Applications of Lasers, Volume III presents the fundamental principles and methods of selective photophysical and photochemical processes.

The book discusses isotopic separations and related research for each eight classes of laser methods, and their applications in chemistry, biology, and materials science. The experimental results on multiphoton infrared processes and their theoretical interpretation are likewise thoroughly discussed and described.

Organic and inorganic chemists, physical chemists, and optical physicists will find the text a valuable reference material.
