Tunable Laser Applications, Second Editionby F. J. Duarte
Synopses & Reviews
Tunability has added an important dimension to a variety of laser devices and led to new systems and applications. From laser spectroscopy to Bose-Einstein condensation, the one nexus is the tunable laser.
Incorporating nine new chapters since the first edition, Tunable Laser Applications, Second Edition reflects the significant developments in tunable lasers that have taken place over the past decade. Internationally recognized experts describe the physics and architecture of widely applied tunable laser sources, emphasizing biomedical applications of fiber lasers and ultrashort pulsed lasers, as well as laser isotope separation and cancer photodynamic therapy.
The Second Edition Covers
Outlining applications in biology and medicine, this second edition offers a much-needed account of the most promising tunable laser applications.
Book News Annotation:
Now in its second edition, this manual on tunable lasers has been expanded to include recent developments over the last decade such as optical parametric oscillators, solid-state dye lasers, interferometric imaging and large free-electron lasers. Editor Duarte (electrical and computer engineering, U. of New Mexico) has assembled research from experts in the field to show how tunable laser applications are currently being used in biology and medicine, with detailed explanations of the physics and architecture behind these emerging technologies. Engineering students and researchers can also learn how ultrashort pulsed lasers are being used in isotrope separation and cancer research.
