A comprehensive treatment of ultrafast optics
This book fills the need for a thorough and detailed account ofultrafast optics. Written by one of the most preeminent researchersin the field, it sheds new light on technology that has already hada revolutionary impact on precision frequency metrology, high-speedelectrical testing, biomedical imaging, and in revealing theinitial steps in chemical reactions.
Ultrafast Optics begins with a summary of ultrashortlaser pulses and their practical applications in a range ofreal-world settings. Next, it reviews important backgroundmaterial, including an introduction to Fourier series and Fouriertransforms, and goes on to cover:
- Principles of mode-locking
- Ultrafast pulse measurement methods
- Dispersion and dispersion compensation
- Ultrafast nonlinear optics: second order
- Ultrafast nonlinear optics: third order
- Mode-locking: selected advanced topics
- Manipulation of ultrashort pulses
- Ultrafast time-resolved spectroscopy
- Terahertz time-domain electromagnetics
Professor Weiner's expertise and cutting-edge research result ina book that is destined to become a seminal text for engineers,researchers, and graduate students alike.

I found references to be most excellent and relevant, covering both historic papers on the subjects (that have been cited over 400 times), and newer techniques that have been invented recently.
The book also has very helpful sections on how exactly to model certain equations numerically, and the issues with this modeling, sometimes providing step-by-step guidelines (which I was able to follow and model my processes).
The author has studied (in the long past) with the most famous ultrafast optics professors, which makes him very competent and capable of writing a book of such an excellent quality.
I have had this book for the last two years, and find myself using it every week.
