Introduces the fundamental principles of lasers which are immediately
relevant to the lasers that students will encounter in the workplace.
Balancing theory with engineering examples from well-established laser
companies, the book also provides an important and practical design
resource. Integrates the science and design of lasers, with chapters 1-8 focusing on the physics, and chapters 9-12 emphasizing laser design.
Presents extensive open-ended problems in design to give
students the opportunity to apply skills they have learned.
Presents and discusses actual laser systems from major
Covers important support technologies that are part
of the real systems students will one day be working with.
Provides an introduction to non-linear optics suitable
for undergraduate students.
Includes a glossary of basic laser terms.
Incorporates material on basic laser safety.
Includes a summary of basic optics commonly used in laser
Includes extensive problem sets (with MathCAD solutions available to the instructor).
Presents ideas for student projects and design activities.
