Starting from the concepts of classical optics, Optics, Light and Lasers introduces in detail the phenomena of linear and nonlinear light matter interaction, the properties of modern laser sources, and the concepts of quantum optics. Several examples taken from the scope of modern research are provided to emphasize the relevance of optics in current developments with in science and technology. The text has been written for newcomers to the topic and benefits from the author′s ability to explain difficult sequences and effects in a straightforward and easily comprehensively way. To this second, completely updated and enlarged edition, new chapters on quantum optics, photonic fibers and materials have been added, as well as more than 100 problems on laser physics and applied optics.
