As this is not a glossary I'm posting it here:


From their website:

"This comprehensive open-access encyclopedia, authored by Dr. Rüdiger Paschotta and provided by RP Photonics Consulting GmbH, explains the physical principles and common techniques in laser technology, while also covering major areas of fiber-optic technology and nonlinear optics, and addressing supplementary topics like ultrashort pulses, optical communications, general optics, optoelectronics, and quantum optics. Many references to selected scientific articles and textbooks aid further studies.

The encyclopedia is freely accessible and part of the WWW Virtual Library, and through it RP Photonics provides a much appreciated service to both the photonics industry and the academic community.

So far, the encyclopedia contains 562 technical articles. ..."

Articles are very long and exhaustive, bringing not only information about the key word but also lots of literature.
