Frequency-Resolved Optical Gating: The Measurement of Ultrashort Laser Pulses Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Frequency-Resolved Optical-Gating (FROG) technique has revolutionized our ability to measure and understand ultrashort laser pulses. This book contains everything you need to know to measure even the shortest, weakest, or most complex ultrashort laser pulses. Whether you're an undergrad or an advanced researcher, you'll find easy-to-understand descriptions of all the key ideas behind all the FROG techniques, all the practical details of pulse measurement, and many new directions of research. This book is not like any other scientific book. It is a lively discussion of the basic concepts. It is an advanced treatment of research-level issues. The image on the front cover of the book is a FROG trace of one of the shortest events ever created, a 4.5-fs laser pulse, measured by Baltuska, et al; JQE, 459 (1999)

Book News Annotation:

This graduate textbook presents the basic concepts of ultrashort pulses and their measurement, then addresses the details of conducting specific pulse measurement activities. Trebino (physics, Georgia Institute of Technology) focuses on the frequency-resolved optical gating (FROG) class of techniques for measuring the full time- dependent intensity and phase of ultrashort light pulses, but also discusses autocorrelators and spectrometers. The CD-ROM contains FROG software that retrieves pulses from traces, and five hours of PowerPoint lectures in English and French.

About the Author

Rick Trebino is the Georgia Research Alliance-Eminent Scholar Chair of Ultrafast Optics in the School of Physics at Georgia Tech. He obtained his Ph.D. at Stanford University and has specialized in the measurement of ultrashort laser pulses for the last decade. He is the co-inventor of the FROG techniques as well as other techniques for measuring pulses.
