Overview

High Brightness Metal Vapor Lasers: Physics and Applications / Edition 1

This work presents the physics and applications of high-power laser radiation on self-contained transitions in metal atoms. High brightness metal vapour lasers are considered the most powerful in the visible spectral range among all existing laser types. This has resulted in numerous applications ranging from purely fundamental scientific research problems to practical application in large-scale commercial problems such as isotope selection. The material is presented by highly regarded scientists, and much of the content has not been previously available to western scientists.
