Summary Laser spectroscopy is a valuable tool for sensing and chemical analysis. Developments in lasers, detectors and mathematical analytical tools have led to improvements in the sensitivity and selectivity of spectroscopic techniques and extended their fields of application. Laser spectroscopy for sensing examines these advances and how laser spectroscopy can be used in a diverse range of industrial, medical and environmental applications. Part one reviews basic concepts of atomic and molecular processes, presents the fundamentals of laser technology for controlling the spectral and temporal
