Title Femtosecond optical frequency comb : principle, operation, and applications / edited by Jun Ye and Steven T. Cundiff
Published New York : Springer, 2005


Description 1 online resource (xii, 361 pages) : 142 illustrations
Contents Femtosecond Laser Development -- Gigahertz Femtosecond Lasers -- Microstructure Fiber and White-light Generation -- Optical Comb Dynamics and Stabilization -- Femtosecond Noncollinear Parametric Amplification and Carrier-Envelope Phase Control -- Optical Frequency Measurement -- Optical Frequency Measurement Using Frequency Multiplication and Frequency Combs -- Femtosecond Lasers for Optical Clocks and Low Noise Frequency Synthesis -- Generation and Measurement of Intense Phase-Controlled Few-Cycle Laser Pulses -- Quantum Control of High-Order Harmonic Generation -- Applications of Ultrafast Lasers
Summary "This book provides an introductory description of mode-locked lasers, the connection between time and frequency descriptions of their output and the physical origins of the electric field dynamics, together with an overview of applications of femtosecond comb technology. Individual chapters go into more detail on mode-locked laser development, spectral broadening in microstructure fiber, optical parametric amplification, optical frequency metrology, optical atomic clocks, ultrasensitive sensors, carrier-envelope phase dynamics, high field ionization of atoms and generation of attosecond high-harmonic radiation." "To provide readers with the most recent, direct, ad comprehensive information, the chapters are written by the international researchers who have led the development of this field. This book acts as both a resource for experts and as an introduction for those who are new to the field."--Jacket
