Field Guide to Laser Pulse Generation (SPIE Vol. FG14) (Field Guide) (Field Guide) (Field Guide) (Spie Field Guides)
It is important to note that laser pulses span an enormously large parameter space in terms of pulse duration, pulse energy, and wavelength. This is possible only with a wide range of techniques, the most common of which are discussed in this Field Guide.
This Guide is designed for industry practitioners, researchers, users of pulsed and ultrafast laser systems, and anyone wanting to learn more about the potential of different pulse generation methods.
