This essential volume, a brilliant multidisciplinary source, documents the state of the art of laser physics and it applications.

Scientific trends and related technological aspects are considered by compiling results and conclusions from phenomenology, observation and experiments.

Reliable data, physical fundamentals and detailed references are presented.

In recent decades the laser source has matured into a universal tool common to scientific research as well as to industrial use.

Today, the main technical goal is the generation of optical power towards shorter wavelengths, shorter pulses, higher efficiency and higher power for applications in science and industry.

Tailoring the optical energy in wavelength, space and time is a requirement for the investigation of laser-induced processes, i.e. excitation, non-linear amplification, storage of optical energy, etc.

According to the actual trends in laser research and development, Vol. VIII/1 is split into three parts.
