Links to the Encyclopedia

If you feel that this encyclopedia is a useful resource for others (inside or outside your own institution), you may help them by placing a link on your website.

The suggested html code:

<a href="https://www.rp-photonics.com/encyclopedia.html">
Encyclopedia of Laser Physics and Technology</a>
This encyclopedia explains basic terms and principles of
laser physics and technology, with additional content from
other topics such as general optics, nonlinear optics,
fiber optics, quantum optics, and optical communications.

You may also use links to encyclopedia articles as term definitions in your own online articles. An example for a sentence of the html form of your article could be:

For some kinds of material processing, such as drilling
holes, the laser needs to emit energetic pulses, and this is
usually accomplished with the technique of
<a href="https://www.rp-photonics.com/q_switching.html">Q switching</a>.

This is sensible because the locations of all the encyclopedia articles can be considered to be permanent.

You may also place a link on the website of RP Photonics, or to the Photonics Spotlight. For the latter, you may use e.g. the following code:

<a href="https://www.rp-photonics.com/spotlight.html">
The Photonics Spotlight</a>,
highlighting interesting news and useful hints in the areas
of photonics, in particular of laser technology and applications.

But maybe you are interested in getting links to your own website. This is possible if that website is also related to laser physics or photonics. Please check the page on advertising.
