Femtosecond Laser Spectroscopy by Jun Ye (auth.), Peter Hannaford (eds.)

By Jun Ye (auth.), Peter Hannaford (eds.)

As suggestions and methodologies have developed during the last 20 years, the world of ultrafast technology has develop into gigantic and interesting and has impacted many parts of chemistry, biology and physics, and different fields reminiscent of fabrics technological know-how, electric engineering, and optical verbal exchange. the sector has lately exploded with the assertion of a sequence of outstanding new advancements and advances. This quantity surveys this fresh development in 11 chapters written by means of major foreign researchers within the box. It comprises sections on femtosecond optical frequency combs, smooth x-ray femtosecond laser assets, and attosecond laser assets. additionally, the participants deal with real-time spectroscopy of molecular vibrations with sub-5-fs pulses and multidimensional femtosecond coherent spectroscopies for learning molecular and electron dynamics. Novel tools for measuring and characterizing ultrashort laser pulses and ultrashort pulses of sunshine also are defined. the themes coated are revolutionizing the fields of biomedical imaging, electron dynamics, ultrahigh precision spectroscopy, and optical frequency metrology. Surveying the most recent advances in ultrafast lasers, Femtosecond Laser Spectroscopy should be of curiosity to either researchers and graduate scholars.
