Description (user) :
Nonlinear optics is essentially the study of the interaction of strong laser light with matter. It lies at the basis of the field of photonics, the use of light fields to control other light fields and to perform logical operations. Some of the topics of this book include the fundamentals and applications of optical systems based on the nonlinear interaction of light with matter. Topics to be treated include: mechanisms of optical nonlinearity, second-harmonic and sum- and difference-frequency generation, photonics and optical logic, optical self-action effects including self-focusing and optical soliton formation, optical phase conjugation, stimulated Brillouin and stimulated Raman scattering, and selection criteria of nonlinear optical materials.· Covers all the latest topics and technology in this ever-evolving area of study that forms the backbone of the major applications of optical technology· Offers first-rate instructive style making it ideal for self-study· Emphasizes the fundamentals of non-linear optics rather than focus on particular applications that are constantly changing
