BooknewsIntroduces 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.
