Theory of the interaction of femtosecond light pulses with matter; Femtosecond lasers and laser systems; Principles of femtosecond coherent spectroscopy of impurity amorphous media.

Description

Femtosecond optics involves the study of ultra-short pulses of light. Understanding the behaviour of these light pulses makes it possible to develop ultra-fast lasers with a wide range of applications in such areas as medical imaging, chemical analysis and micro-machining. Written by two leading experts in the field, this book reviews the theory of the interaction of femtosecond light pulses with matter, femtosecond lasers and laser systems, and the principles of femtosecond coherent spectroscopy of impurity amorphous media.

Key Features

  • reviews the theory of the interaction of femtosecond light pulses with matter
  • Discusses femtosecond lasers and laser systems
  • Considers the principles of femtosecond coherent spectroscopy of impurity amorphous media

Readership

Physicists, electrical engineers and scientists involved in research and development in optical materials and lasers; Materials scientists
