This smooth introduction for advanced undergraduates starts with the fundamentals of lasers and pulsed optics. Thus prepared, the student is introduced to short and ultrashort laser pulses, and learns how to generate, manipulate, and measure them. Spectroscopic implications are also discussed. The second edition has been completely revised and includes two new chapters on some of the most promising and fast-developing applications in ultrafast phenomena: coherent control and attosecond pulses.

From the reviews:

"The book is mainly written for the physically experienced scientists working in the field of short pulses or for those physicists who start to work in this field but are experienced in comparable fields of their science. The book is well-suited for this purpose, since it introduces the related areas of science in a comprehensive and clearly laid out manner ... It is a pleasure to read and a scientific profit to study ..." Optics & Laser Technology

"I use femtosecond lasers in my graduate work, and I found this book an excellent source of review material in preparing for my oral examinations. It is not very detailed or mathematical, but has excellent phenomenonological discussions of a variety of laser properties and techniques ... I found particularly useful the sections on amplification, semiconductor lasers, and ultrashort diagnostics." Eric Landahl, Graduate Student, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
