About this book

Many optical design technical books are available for many years which mainly deal with image optics design based on geometric optics and using sequential raytracing technique. Some books slightly touched laser beam manipulation optics design. On the other hand many books on laser diodes have been published that extensively deal with laser diode physics with little touching on laser diode beam manipulations and characterizations. There are some internet resources dealing with laser diode beams. However, these internet resources have not covered enough materials with enough details on laser diode beam manipulations and characterizations. A technical book concentrated on laser diode beam manipulations and characterizations can fit in to the open and provide useful information to laser diode users. Laser Diode Beam Basics, Manipulations and  Characterizations is concentrated on the very practical side of the subject, it only discusses the basic physics and mathematics that are necessary for the readers in order to understand the subject. This book is intended to provide a practical guidance and reference to those scientists and engineers who are still new to laser diode applications, and to those undergraduate and graduate students who are studying lasers and optics. Readers are expected to be able to fast and easily find the most practical and useful information about laser diodes in this book without the need of searching through a sea of information.

About the authors

Haiyin Sun received a Ph.D. in applied science from the University of Arkansas, a M.S. in lasers and optics from Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Science (SIOFM), and a B.S. in physics from Shanghai Normal University. He has over twenty years industrial and academic experience in laser diode applications and characterizations, lens designs, mathematical modeling, project management etc.

            He was the laser/optical engineer in the Laser Diode Module Department of Coherent Inc.; a silicon valley based laser manufacturer, and Power Technology Inc.; a major laser diode module manufacturer in USA. He was instrumental in establishing the catalog business for Coherent Inc. and then served as the optical product manager of the Catalog Department. He was a senior production manager with Oplink Communications Inc.; a silicon valley fiber optic module manufacturer, a scientist at SIOFM, and a visiting scientist at the Telecom Research Center of German Post. He was also an adjunct assistant professor of applied science at the University of Arkansas and served as an editorial board member for the Journal of Optical Communications (Germany). He is currently holding a leading optical engineer position with The Integrated Optics Division of L-3 Communications, where he is mainly involved in visible and IR optical system designs and developments.

            Dr. Sun is the primary author of over thirty peer reviewed journal papers on lasers and optics, inventor of three US patents, and contributed a book chapter on laser parameter measurements to The Measurement, Instrumentation and Sensors Handbook published by CRC Press. Two of his research works on lasers were reported by Photonics Spectra and cited by CVI-Melles Griot Catalog, respectively.
