It begins with a chapter on the use of optical resonators for frequency stabilization of lasers, which is followed by in-depth chapters discussing cavity ring-down spectroscopy, frequency-modulated, cavity-enhanced spectroscopy, intracavity spectroscopies, microresonators and cavity-enhanced comb filters. This book is aimed towards a reader with a background in optics and spectroscopy, but who is unfamiliar with the methods discussed in the book.
*Practical implementation information
Comprehensive review of cavity-enhanced methods
*Written by the researchers who pioneered these spectroscopies
*Discusses cavity-enhanced optical instrumentation
Reviews scientific discoveries unearthed using these methods
