A guide for parents looking for balanced information about vaccinations. While not afraid to be vaccination-critical, sometimes strongly so, the book presents data both positive and negative about vaccinations, sourced from official bodies and peer-reviewed journal articles. Each Disease Chapter examines how effective vaccinations have been and what the risk from the disease is. The Vaccine Chapters analyse the safety and efficacy of each vaccine used in the UK. The USA and other English-speaking countries use different vaccines but most of the data is transferable and applicable internationally. If you are a parent looking for balanced information about vaccinations, this book is for you.
Femtosecond optics involves the study of ultra-short pulses of light. Understanding the behavior of these light pulses makes it possible to develop ultra-fast lasers with a wide range of applications in areas such as medical imaging, chemical analysis, and micro-machining. Written by two leading experts in the field, this book reviews the theory of the interaction of femtosecond light pulses with matter, femtosecond lasers and laser systems, and the principles of femtosecond coherent spectroscopy of impurity molecules in amorphous media.
