Covering both theoretical design principles and experimental realizations of systems, Solid-State Lasers and Applications provides an in-depth, up-to-date account of major advances in the field. The beginning chapters explore recent results in the development and applications of new solid-state gain media in different wavelength regions. Examples include cerium-doped lasers in the ultraviolet range, ytterbium lasers near 1µm, rare-earth ion-doped lasers in the eye-safe region, and tunable Cr2+:ZnSe lasers in the mid-infrared range. The remaining chapters study various modes of operation of solid-state laser systems, including pulsed microchip lasers, ultrafast solid-state lasers, and noise characterization.
