Written by experts in the field, The Supercontinuum Laser Source: Fundamentals with Updated References surveys the status of this ultrafast nonlinear process in generating new wavelengths while discussing breakthroughs in the technology over the past 15 years. Updated from a 1989 edition, the illustrated, 560-page book includes chapters on self-phase modulation and spectral broadening, supercontinuum generation and condensed matter, and supercontinuum in optical coherence tomography, ultrafast pulse compression, time and frequency metrology, and wavelength division multiplex telecommunication. Robert R. Alfano, ed.; Springer, New York, 2006; $159, hardcover.
