Summary "Principles of Lasers and Optics describes both the fundamental principles of the lasers and the propagation and application of laser radiation in bulk and guided-wave components. All solid-state, gas and semiconductor lasers are analyzed uniformly as macroscopic devices with susceptibility originated from quantum mechanical interactions to develop an overall understanding of the coherent nature of laser radiation. The objective of the book is to present lasers and applications of laser radiation from a macroscopic, uniform point of view." "This clearly presented and concise text will be useful for first-year graduates in electrical engineering and physics. It also acts as a reference book on the mathematical and analytical techniques used to understand many opto-electronic applications."--BOOK JACKET.
