With emphasis on the physical and engineering principles, thisbook provides a comprehensive and highly accessible treatment ofmodern lasers and optoelectronics. Divided into four parts, itexplains laser fundamentals, types of lasers, laser electronics& optoelectronics, and laser applications, covering each of thetopics in their entirety, from basic fundamentals to advancedconcepts.
Key features include:
* exploration of technological and application-related aspects oflasers and optoelectronics, detailing both existing and emergingapplications in industry, medical diagnostics and therapeutics,scientific studies and Defence.
* simple explanation of the concepts and essential information onelectronics and circuitry related to laser systems
* illustration of numerous solved and unsolved problems,practical examples, chapter summaries, self-evaluation exercises,and a comprehensive list of references for furtherreading
This volume is a valuable design guide for R&D engineers andscientists engaged in design and development of lasers andoptoelectronics systems, and technicians in their operation andmaintenance. The tutorial approach serves as a useful reference forunder-graduate and graduate students of lasers and optoelectronics,also PhD students in electronics, optoelectronics and physics.
