PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION
PREFACE TO FIRST EDITIONOur concept for a new handbook on electro-optics integrates sources, materials, detectors and ongoing applications. The field of electro-optics now encompasses both incoherent optical sources and lasers that operate from the millimeter wavelength region to the x-ray region. In this handbook we provide coverage of the most important laser sources in this wavelength range. Having chosen a broad range of wavelengths from our sources, we then define the properties of the materials through which these sources might travel. From there we consider the detectors that might be used to observe them. When all the components have been covered, we consider the applications for which electro-optical systems …
