About this book

This book presents the latest advances in ultrafast science, including ultrafast laser and measurement technology as well as studies of ultrafast phenomena. Pico- and femtosecond processes relevant in physics, chemistry, biology and engineering are presented. Ultrafast technology has had a profound impact in a wide range of applications, among them imaging, material diagnostics and transformation and high-speed optoelectronics. This book summarizes the results presented at the 12th Ultrafast Phenomena Conference and reviews the state of the art of this important and rapidly advancing field.

Reviews

 "Contains a vast amount of valuable information for specialists. Such a diverse range of topics will include something of interest for everyone. At the same time, the book represents the state of the art in this fast-growing area of research. I would certainly recommend it to students entering the field who want to work at the forefront of modern science."
