This volume contains 128 figures, 23 tables, 302 equations, and more than
1000 references in 456 pages. Chapters 2 to 6 include problems. Dye Laser Principles has become one of the most cited titles in the field of tunable lasers.
In summary, Dye Laser Principles is a fine book...Graduate students
and laser physicists will find that this publication contains an up-
to-date description of current dye laser topics of interest with an
excellent collection of references...I would recommend this text to
laser physics teachers and anyone working with dye lasers as tools in
their industrial or research laboratories.

This is probably the most detailed and up-to-date overview of dye
laser technology that exists at present. It is very well produced...
There is a strong emphasis on principles, certainly in the early
chapters, which will make this book have a lasting value.
