Prof. Dr. Eng. Dan Constantin Dumitras graduated at the Faculty of Electronics, University Politehnica, Bucharest in 1970. He obtained his PhD at the Institute of Atomic Physics, Bucharest in 1978. Since 1970 he has been involved in research on laser physics and applications (frequency stabilization of lasers, photoacoustic spectroscopy, laser applications in medicine and biology, material processing and ultrashort pulse, high intensity lasers - extreme light) at the Department of Lasers, Institute of Atomic Physics and at the National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics, Bucharest. He works as a professor at Faculty of Physics, University of Bucharest and as a professor and a PhD supervisor at the Faculty of Applied Sciences, University Politehnica, Bucharest. He is the author and/or editor of 15 books and has published more than 120 papers in scientific journals. He held more than 200 presentations at the international conferences (30 invited lectures). Prof. Dumitras organized several international conferences: ROMOPTO 1997, ALT 2001 and ALT 2006, LEI 2009 and ICUIL 2012.

The present book includes several contributions aiming a deeper understanding of the basic processes in the operation of CO2 lasers (lasing on non-traditional bands, frequency stabilization, photoacoustic spectroscopy) and achievement of new systems (CO2 lasers generating ultrashort pulses or high average power, lasers based on diffusion cooled V-fold geometry, transmission of IR radiation through hollow core microstructured fibers). The second part of the book is dedicated to applications in material processing (heat treatment, welding, synthesis of new materials, micro fluidics) and in medicine (clinical applications, dentistry, non-ablative therapy, acceleration of protons for cancer treatment).
