Preface

The approach taken in this book is simple: present laser theory in an understandable way and one that can be applied immediately, and numerically, to real laser systems. With that in mind, the approach in this text is to present each theory along with a real, solved example—in most cases, based on commercial lasers. As a professor of laser science, I am fortunate to have a lab equipped with many different types of lasers; many of those lasers are included here in examples.

In making the theory “accessible,” both a calculus-based and an algebraic approach are shown in tandem; a prime example of this is the presentation of both the calculus-based Rigrod model and an algebra-based model for the prediction of various laser parameters in ...
