Tunability has added an important dimension to a variety of laser devices and led to new systems and applications.  From laser spectroscopy to Bose-Einstein condensation, the one nexus is the tunable laser.

Incorporating nine new chapters since the first edition, Tunable Laser Applications, Second Edition reflects the significant developments in tunable lasers that have taken place over the past decade. Internationally recognized experts describe the physics and architecture of widely applied tunable laser sources, emphasizing biomedical applications of fiber lasers and ultrashort pulsed lasers, as well as laser isotope separation and cancer photodynamic therapy.

The Second Edition covers:

Advances in optical parametric oscillators Developments in tunable semiconductor lasers Solid-state dye lasers Laser isotope separation using diode lasers Medical applications of table-top coherent X-rays

Outlining applications in biology and medicine, this second edition offers a much-needed account of the most promising tunable laser applications.
