About the book
Lasers are becoming increasingly important in our high-tech environment as they have been used in a wide range of applications including material processing, optical communication, medical treatment and optical sensor. As different laser technologies continue to make it possible to change laser parameters and improve beam quality and performance, both theoretical and practical knowledges on various state-of-art laser systems also become increasingly important. Presenting the most recent developments in the field, Laser Technology focuses on the design and applications of various laser systems including high power, Q-switched and mode-locked lasers. With contributions from leading international experts, the book explores the latest research results and applications of various lasers systems. Laser Technology covers the most important aspects of the field to provide current, comprehensive coverage of high power, Q-switched and mode-locked lasers.
