Abstract:

The handbook is a compendium of measurement that encompasses the laser technology. It includes a wealth of information gleaned from over 650 articles surveyed in an exhaustive literature search that reviewed American as well as foreign scientific journals, and Government reports. This work contains the contributions of 37 authors whose works were edited to conform with the text and abridged to eliminate redundancy. It is believed that the text treats all of the significant laser measurement techniques that have been published to date in the areas of beam sampling, beam parameters, power, energy, gain, wavelength, bandwidth, coherence and frequency stability. The techniques of modulation and the methods of measurement are treated as are the communication aspects of noise in the laser signal source. This volume contains chapters entitled Measurement of bandwidth and coherence Measurement of frequency stability Measurement of noise and modulation of laser carriers.
