Femtosecond Laser Shaping: From Laboratory to Industry


Marcos Dantus
August 14, 2017

Expensive, delicate, and difficult to operate, femtosecond lasers have already won two Nobel Prizes and created multi-billion dollar industries. As these lasers break out of laboratories for use in real-world large-scale applications, the number of people using them increases. This book provides a f...
