Publisher Synopsis

"One of Marc Csele's key strengths is his clear and illustrative style; he grounds the material in everyday words and examples. ...the choice and order of the chapters brings the reader along gradually from basic knowledge to practical application in a logical and comfortable way."--Marc Nantel, Niagara College, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada"This is a textbook, written so as to be accessible to undergraduate students. The aim is to introduce the reader to laser science, parallel with the presentation of basic mathematical models used for the description of lasers of various types, and of basic physical properties of those lasers. Accordingly, the mathematical models are classified as algebra-based and calculus-based ones. Particular chapters are dealing with fundamental topics, such as the lasing threshold, gain saturation, thermal effects, Q-switching, and some basic effects of nonlinear optics. Many particular examples are included, which may be used as teaching material. The book also contains a lot of practical material about basic types of existing lasers, such as gas lasers, semiconductor lasers, and solid-state ones."--Boris A. Malomed (Tel Aviv), from Zentralblatt MATH 1320 - 1 Read more...
