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 companies.
  • 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 engineering.
  • Includes extensive problem sets (with MathCAD solutions available to the instructor).
  • Presents ideas for student projects and design activities.
