This book is based primarily on the author’s many years of extensive and complex experience in diode laser engineering. He uses a fully integrated, novel approach to the text, covering the three closely connected fields of diode laser engineering, reliability engineering and diagnostics. It combines device physics with the practical issues of real device exploitation. This book would be a valuable reference and essential source for researchers and engineers who work on the development of diode laser products. It will also be useful for academics and teachers for educational purposes.
