By Pasquale Maddaloni
Foreword by means of Nobel laureate Professor Theodor W. Hänsch of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Based at the authors’ experimental paintings over the past 25 years, Laser-Based Measurements for Time and Frequency area purposes: A Handbook offers easy thoughts, cutting-edge functions, and destiny tendencies in optical, atomic, and molecular physics. It offers all of the heritage info at the major different types of laser assets and methods, bargains an in depth account of the latest effects got for time- and frequency-domain functions of lasers, and develops the theoretical framework worthy for figuring out the experimental functions.
After a old advent, the publication describes the elemental ideas and mathematical instruments required for learning the physics of oscillators. It then discusses microwave and optical resonators, the most important points of operation and basic homes of lasers, and precision spectroscopy and absolute frequency metrology. It additionally makes a speciality of microwave and optical frequency criteria and explores present and capability examine directions.
Accessible to scientists, postdoc researchers, and complex undergraduate scholars, this self-contained e-book supplies a wide-ranging, balanced evaluation of the areas―including frequency criteria and clocks, ultra-high-precision spectroscopy, quantum info, and environmental metrology―revolutionized via the new creation of optical frequency comb synthesizers (OFCSs) in accordance with femtosecond mode-locked lasers. The ebook can be an invaluable advisor to state-of-the-art examine for brands of complex laser platforms and optical devices.
