Many laser applications depend on the ability of a particular laser to be frequency tunable. Among the many different types of frequency tunable lasers are: dye lasers, excimer lasers, and semiconductor lasers. Thisbook gives active researchers and engineers the practical information they need to choose an appropriate tunable laser for their particular applications.
- Presents a unified and integrated perspective on tunable lasers
- Includes sources spanning the electromagnetic spectrum from the UV to the FIR
- Contains 182 figures and 68 tables
- Provides coverage of optical parametric oscillators and tunable gas, liquid, solid state, and semiconductor lasers
All physics, chemistry, electronic engineering, and biological scientists (and advanced students in these disciplines) who use, or might wish to use, a tunable laser in their research. Also, tunability is a very important feature in lasers since many potential areas of application such as medicine, isotope separation, lidar, industry, and the military rely on a laser to be frequency tunable.
