This is a book that will be essential reading for anyone angaged in the design and construction of...the dye laser...these laser systems are fearsome beasts that might be required to carry the general warning "don't try this at home"...In all cases the authors are eminently qualified to discuss their area of specialization and the editor has done an admirable job in coordinating the project.

This book contains rather more than the title would suggest. In all chapters the presentation leads from the history and the very fundamentals to the latest research developments. The physics as well as the practical aspects of high-power dye lasers are discussed extensively... Generally speaking, the book can help the student to understand dye laser operation. It is the most recent and comprehensive presentation of the topic.
