This book will introduce you to the fascinating development of photonics, avoiding complicated technical terminology and instead explaining the physical fundamentals in a clear way. Based on this, important developments such as the laser and its applications in industry, research and everyday life are described. Complicated physical properties and technical details are explained to the reader in an understandable way.
