Krzysztof Jakubczak


Krzysztof Jakubczak is a graduate from Military University of Technology, Warsaw, Poland. He achieved his education in the fields of laser physics, optics, infrared technology, and light modulation and detection. He earned his MSc degree for research on laser-plasma source for lithography and micro- and nano-structures production with the lobster-eye optics assembly. He continued his education at Czech Technical University in Prague. He earned his PhD for construction, examination and applications of high-order harmonics source using titanium-sapphire femtosecond laser system and noble gases. Amongst others he expanded his professional skills to such areas like vacuum technology, spectroscopy, plasma physics, ultrafast laser systems, and optics. He started his professional career as R&D Engineer with the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. Then he got involved in HiLASE Project, as Deputy Project Manager, and led the R&D team Research Program Leader working on development of thin-disk lasers. Finally, he decided to pursue an industrial career in medical devices (intraocular lenses). He worked as Head of Engineering Department with Croma Polska Ltd (now Valeant Pharmaceuticals), Warsaw, Poland. Currently he is an advisor to investors and Polish State on commercialization of innovations in life sciences. He also runs his own optoelectronics company, Perspectiva Solutions. Krzysztof Jakubczak is a member of Photonics Society of Poland.

This book addresses topics related to various laser systems intended for the applications in science and various industries. Some of them are very recent achievements in laser physics (e.g. laser pulse cleaning), while others face their renaissance in industrial applications (e.g. CO2 lasers). This book has been divided into four different sections: (1) Laser and terahertz sources, (2) Laser beam manipulation, (3) Intense pulse propagation phenomena, and (4) Metrology. The book addresses such topics like: Q-switching, mode-locking, various laser systems, terahertz source driven by lasers, micro-lasers, fiber lasers, pulse and beam shaping techniques, pulse contrast metrology, and improvement techniques. This book is a great starting point for newcomers to laser physics.
