Ultrafast Optics, Hardback Book


A comprehensive treatment of ultrafast optics This book fills the need for a thorough and detailed account of ultrafast optics.

Written by one of the most preeminent researchers in the field, it sheds new light on technology that has already had a revolutionary impact on precision frequency metrology, high-speed electrical testing, biomedical imaging, and in revealing the initial steps in chemical reactions.

Ultrafast Optics begins with a summary of ultrashort laser pulses and their practical applications in a range of real-world settings.

Next, it reviews important background material, including an introduction to Fourier series and Fourier transforms, and goes on to cover:* Principles of mode-locking* Ultrafast pulse measurement methods* Dispersion and dispersion compensation* Ultrafast nonlinear optics: second order* Ultrafast nonlinear optics: third order* Mode-locking: selected advanced topics* Manipulation of ultrashort pulses* Ultrafast time-resolved spectroscopy* Terahertz time-domain electromagnetics Professor Weiner's expertise and cutting-edge research result in a book that is destined to become a seminal text for engineers, researchers, and graduate students alike.
