The use of ultrafast lasers has expanded beyond use by specialist laser physicists and is increasingly commonplace in both physical and life sciences, where the high intensities, broad bandwidths, and short pulse durations make them ideal for investigating a wide range of chemical and physical phenomena. Working with these ultrashort femtosecond laser pulses requires some special care when compared to other laser systems, and this book provides an ideal starting point for the non-specialist to gain the necessary knowledge to start effectively working with ultrafast lasers and optics. The book walks the reader through the relevant parts of ultrashort pulse physics, pulse generation, and pulse characterisation, before discussing how to practically build an optical setup and manipulate these pulses. Many aspects of the practicalities of working with optics and lasers that are often considered assumed knowledge by experienced campaigners are discussed in detail. Aimed specifically at non-specialists, the emphasis is placed on intuitive, qualitative understanding of the concepts. The fundamental aim is that students starting a project or PhD in a laser group, can pick this book up and quickly get up to speed with the fundamentals of ultrafast laser physics that enable effective laboratory working.

James David Pickering is an experimental physical chemist currently working as a postdoctoral research associate at Aarhus University. Originally from Essex, he attended Notley High School and Braintree Sixth Form and obtained his MChem in Chemistry at Jesus College, University of Oxford, and his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Aarhus University. Following this, he returned to the UK and worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, where he also taught extensively in physical chemistry and mathematics. His research interests lie in the application of ultrafast laser spectroscopy to real-world chemical problems.

James is a committed and passionate scientific educator and teaches extensively across the physical natural sciences. Most recently, he has taught physical chemistry and mathematics to undergraduates in teaching lectureships at the University of Oxford; and has previously worked as a teaching fellow at the University of Leicester. He is an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Das Dateiformat ePUB ist sehr gut für Romane und Sachbücher geeignet - also für "fließenden" Text ohne komplexes Layout. Bei E-Readern oder Smartphones passt sich der Zeilen- und Seitenumbruch automatisch den kleinen Displays an. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.

Bitte beachten Sie bei der Verwendung der Lese-Software Adobe Digital Editions: wir empfehlen Ihnen unbedingt nach Installation der Lese-Software diese mit Ihrer persönlichen Adobe-ID zu autorisieren!
