Femtosecond Laser Pulses Principles and Experiments

This smooth introduction for advanced undergraduate students starts with the fundamentals of lasers and pulsed optics. Thus prepared, the student learns how to generate short and ultrashort laser pulses, how to manipulate them, and how to measure them. Finally, spectroscopic implications are discuss...
