The revised second edition of the book "Laser - Grundlagen der Laserstrahlerzeugung" by Thomas Graf was published in March 2015. The new edition has been extended by basic contents such as the modes in optical fibers, the derivation of blackbody radiation and the quantitative treatment of the contribution of spontaneous emission to the laser beam. In addition to didactically motivated editorial changes, the book was supplemented by selected current developments. For better readability, some of the images are also reproduced in color.
