Cambridge.jpgThe objective of Principles of Lasers and Optics is to present lasers and applications of laser radiation from a uniform point of view. Analyses of the properties of coherent laser light in optical components are set forth together. The 258-page resource includes discussions on the macroscopic differences and similarities of various types of lasers, on whether to analyze laser radiation as natural light or as a guided wave, and on techniques such as supermodes and 2-D Green’s function for planar waveguides. Targeted to first-year graduates in physics and electrical engineering, it also may serve as a reference on mathematical and an-alytical methods used to understand optoelectronic applications.

I am yet to see this book. I have a question. Fluorescent light emitted at the edges of any flat transparent fluorescent doped sheet (Glass/Plastic) cannot be focusse at a point or made into a light beamwith concave or convex lenses perhaps becuse the photons tend to disperse in all directions, and no two are in the same direction. If it is possible to concentrate them into a small diameter beam, then it could be directed onto a Photovoltaic cell, to give maximum wattage with minimum area of PV Cell. Could you possibly suggest away to bring these multi directional photons to a single direction ?
