Reviews

"... a comprehensive and detailed foray into tunable lasers and their applications. ... a worthy addition to the bookshelf of the academic or student. I would buy it for chapter two alone."

Tim Schmidt, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia

"... stimulating and could lead to self-improvement to Ph.D research scholars, technicians, and students working in the area of robust design of solid-state dye lasers and applications. ... very useful."

Dr. Alok K. Ray, Outstanding Scientist and Head, Tunable Laser Section, Laser and Plasma Technology Division, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, and Senior Professor, Homi Bhabha National Institute, India

"... an encyclopedic compilation ... invaluable for researchers as a work of reference to get a survey of this dynamic field of research or, as the authors state, as a primer for those interested in getting acquainted with this topic."

Andreas Fix, German Aerospace Center (DLR)

Preface

Broadly tunable lasers continue to have a tremendous impact in many and diverse fields of science and technology. From a renaissance in laser spectroscopy, to Bose– Einstein condensation, the one nexus is … the tunable laser. In this regard, numerous applications, from physics, to isotope separation, and all the way to medicine, depend on the tunable laser. This third edition includes 14 chapters. In this collection of chapters, two chapters are new, and all the other chapters have been updated and extended in their coverage. The subject matter ranges from the physics of tunable coherent sources and coherent microscopic instrumentation to exciting applications such as astronomy, defense, medicine, laser isotope separation, microscopy, and spectroscopy.

It is indeed a pleasure to offer to the scientific community this updated and enlarged third edition of Tunable Laser Applications. As editor, I remain indebted to all the contributing authors.
