A Guide to Lasers in Chemistry

by Gerald R. Van Hecke, Kerry K. Karukstis

Editorial Reviews

Introduces and illustrates the use of lasers in chemistry through specific case studies that tell how and why a specific laser was used. Following introductory material on light, lasing action, and laser components, chapters present case studies highlighting the role of the laser as a structural probe and as a chemical reagent. Part I reviews general principles of laser operation and laser types, and Part II offers seven chapters examining the laser as a probe of molecular structure. Four chapters on applications of laser photons as chemical reagents comprise Part III. Includes chapter overviews, discussion questions and answers, a glossary, and appendices.
