About this title


This text is designed to fill the gap between brief reviews of lasers provided in modern physical optics texts and the thorough, graduate-level texts on lasers an quantum mechanics. For those students who may not want to invest a substantial amount of their elective time in extensive course work in this area, it represents a reasonable alternative to a more lengthy treatment.
