Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The editors should...be commended for having brought together many authoritative presentations of a number of relevant topicsThe book reads wella handy reference to all those involved in the use of lasers in spectroscopy and chemical analysis."
(Nicolò Omenetto, University of Florida in Journal of the American Chemical Society, 125:5 (2003)
Booknews
The September 1994 course was designed to be cross-disciplinary, affording both breadth and depth for newcomers. Among the topics addressed in 12 contributions based on presentations at the school but rewritten for this graduate-level text: sources for laser spectroscopy; methods, diagnostics, and instrumentation; absorption and fluorescence; infrared laser spectroscopy of short-lived atoms and molecules; industrial applications of Raman spectroscopy; nonlinear optics; laser desorption; applications of surface second order nonlinear optical signals; and multiphoton ionization and laser mass spectrometry.
