CAIRO BOOKS's Description
In Laser Physics the interaction of radiation and matter, and the principles
of laser operation are treated at a level suitable for fourth-year
undergraduate courses or introductory graduate courses in physics, chemistry or
engineering. The factors which determine efficiency, wavelength coverage,
output power, and beam quality of the different classes of laser are treated
both in terms of fundamental theory and practical construction aspects. Details
of established types of solid-state, semiconductor, and gas lasers are examined
together with the techniques that enable their output to be converted widely
across the spectrum. The latest advances in high power fibre lasers,
femtosecond lasers, and X-ray lasers are explained. The text is liberally
illustrated with more than 300 diagrams. An extensive bibliography is provided,
together with numerical problems in each chapter. Solutions are available via
