Following taken from the preface: ''This book developed from a short course I gave in October 1966 at the University of California Extension in connection with the San Francisco Science Symposium. The course, in turn, was based largely on my review paper. As the material progressed from the review article through the lectures to this book, the emphasis was changed. The article was intended to present a summary of knowledge and recent results to an audience already thoroughly familiar with the principles of laser operation. The lectures were intended to reach a wider audience, but because of time limitations a basic knowledge of laser physics had to be assumed. Here some material relating to definitions of fundamental quantities and basic laser physics has been added so that the reader will not have to be highly dependent on other texts for background material.'' 8vo (about 9.25 inches tall) 172 pages. Bibliography, indexes.
