About this book

The present book covers the application technology of lasers, focusing more on the vast range of processes than on individual applications, in order to motivate and enable future innovations. The physical basics are presented in the first half of the book. The following examination of application categories and their processes is documented by experts from their practical points of view but always refers back to the underlying physical principles. In this way, readers are free to choose their own individual level of depth in understanding this globally relevant field of innovation.

About the authors

Prof. Dr. Reinhart Poprawe holds an M. A. in Physics from California State University (Fresno, 1977). After completion of his diploma and PhD in Physics (Darmstadt 1984) he joined the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology in Aachen, where he began working as head of the department "Laser Oriented Process Development." From 1988 to 1996 he served as managing director of Thyssen Laser Technik GmbH in Aachen. Since then he has been managing director of the Fraunhofer ILT and holds the University Chair for Laser Technology at the RWTH Aachen.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Since 1963, lasers have been applied in the field of material processing … . Many physicists are involved in the further development of laser material processes and looking to understand the underlying physical processes. This book is for them. It is focused on laser applications and includes comments and examples of relevance. … The book is well organized and includes references, appendixes and an index. It is suitable for the graduate students as well as researchers and engineers … in the area of laser applications.” (Lisa Tongning Li, Optics & Photonics News, September, 2011)
