Time-domain Optics of Ultrashort Waveforms

A. B. Shvartsburg

Clarendon Press

Oxford Series in Optical and Imaging Sciences

  • Traditional Fourier analysis does not work for ultrashort wave pulses in dispersive media; Shvartsburg's models do work.
  • Interest in this is fuelled by telecommunications research (pulses in optic fibres, etc.,), laser research (pulse lasers for e.g. surface treatment), military applications (electromagnetic pulse weapons).
  • Shvartsburg is an acknowledged expert in this field and has lectured widely in the US and Europe. This is a strong tradition of work in this area in the former USSR driven by military interest.
