Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Emphasising the fundamentals of transport phenomena, this book provides researchers and practitioners with the technical background they need to understand laser-induced microfabrication and materials processing. It also covers advanced topics, such as the interaction with polymer materials, as well as key and emerging applications to modern technology.

Format: Hardcover
The science of laser interaction with matter is a complex subject comprising various disciplines of Physics, such as solid state physics, optics, thermodynamics, plasma physics. The author has degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering and in Mechanical Engineering that is completely different from the core science disciplines of laser interaction. Thus, the author is a self-educated man who has chosen to share his experience. It is then no surprise that to a person with physics education and with laser mater interaction research experience this book appear as a very superficial and naïve account of an amateur which was purposely overcomplicated in order to add gravitas. In addition, material is presented in a sloppy manner with multiple errors in formulae, with missing description of used variables, with wrong dimensions of the terms in equations. Al this produces an impression that the author had nether sufficient time nor passion to write this book. The author is a well-known professor with sizable administrative workload that includes lading a large research group at the UCLA and performing function of an editor for two international engineering journals. Thus, it is not surprising that he could spare only some fraction of his time to writing this book. Because of the above, this book came out as useless for both professionals and for students as it contains too many errors, misleading and obsolete concepts and also because it depicts laser interaction field in a significantly skewed manner referencing research in a kind of “tribal” way, i.e. referencing only “members” and ignoring “outsiders”.
Several points in support of this assessment:
1. Chapter 1.1.
