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.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
