This book presents a unified and integrated perspective on tunable
lasers and gives researchers and engineers the practical information
they need to choose an appropriate tunable laser for their particular

In summary, the Tunable Lasers Handbook provides a comprehensive review of the theory, practice, and technological realization of tunable optical sources that are available today and presently under active research and development. It will find a broad range of interested readers, within and without its specialized field.
