9780521645355: Principles of Lasers and Optics

This book describes the fundamental principles of the laser and the propagation of laser radiation in bulk and guided wave components. All solid state, gas, and semiconductor lasers are analyzed as macroscopic devices with susceptibility originating from quantum mechanical interactions. Additional analysis of the unique properties of coherent laser light in optical components is derived from fundamental principles.

Book Description:

This book describes both the fundamental principles of the laser and the propagation of laser radiation in bulk and guided wave components. All solid state, gas, and semiconductor lasers are analysed in a uniform manner as macroscopic devices with susceptibility originating from quantum mechanical interactions. Using this analysis the coherent nature of laser radiation can be understood. Further analyses of the unique properties of coherent laser light in optical components, both as natural light and as microwaves, are presented together and derived from fundamental principles.

About the Author:

William S. C. Chang is an Emeritus Professor of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, San Diego (UCSD). After receiving his PhD from Brown University in 1957, he also taught at Stanford University, the Ohio State University and Washington University, St Louis. He pioneered maser and laser research at Stanford, and he has been involved in guided-wave research at Washington University and UCSD since 1971. He has published over 200 technical papers and several books, including Fundamentals of Guided-Wave Optoelectronic Devices (Cambridge University Press, 2009), Principles of Lasers and Optics (Cambridge University Press, 2005) and RF Photonic Technology in Optical Fiber Links (Cambridge University Press, 2002).

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Principles of Lasers and Optics, first published in 2005, describes both the fundamental principles of the laser and the propagation and application of laser radiation in bulk and guided-wave components. All solid state, gas and semiconductor lasers are analysed uniformly as macroscopic devices with susceptibility originated from quantum mechanical interactions to develop an overall understanding of the coherent nature of laser radiation. Analyses of the unique properties of coherent laser light in bulk and guided-wave components are presented together and derived from fundamental principles, to allow students to appreciate the differences and similarities. Topics covered include discussions on how laser radiation should be analysed, the macroscopic differences and similarities of various analyses, special techniques, types of lasers and setting up laser analyses. This text will be useful for first-year graduates in electrical engineering and physics and also as a reference book on analytical techniques. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521645355
