Sandor Varro

Sándor Varró is a scientific adviser at the Wigner Research Centre for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, in Budapest. In the field of nonlinear laser-matter interactions and in theoretical quantum optics he has made seminal contributions to many important realms of physics ranging from electrons in strong fields, high-harmonic generation and attosecond physics, via phase-space distributions and Wigner functions, quantum statistics of single surface plasmons, to a novel description of quantum noise and black-body radiation. His results on the quantum phase properties of squeezed states are widely recognized. Prof. Varró has published more than hundred scientific papers in high-ranked international journals, and authors many book chapters. As a guest scientist he has worked at several research sites in Europe and in the USA, he had a stay of two years as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik, Garching, Germany. He received the Schmid Award of the Eötvös Lóránd Physical Society and the Jánossy Award in Hungary. Prof. Varró is a member of the Committee of Laser Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and of the European Physical Society.

Free Electron Lasers consists of 10 chapters, which refer to fundamentals and design of various free electron laser systems, from the infrared to the xuv wavelength regimes. In addition to making a comparison with conventional lasers, a couple of special topics concerning near-field and cavity electrodynamics, compact and table-top arrangements and strong radiation induced exotic states of matter are analyzed as well. The control and diagnostics of such devices and radiation safety issues are also discussed. Free Electron Lasers provides a selection of research results on these special sources of radiation, concerning basic principles, applications and some interesting new ideas of current interest.
