Product Overview

Based on the author''s extensive teaching experience and lecture notes, this textbook provides a substantially analytical rather than descriptive presentation of nonlinear optics.
Divided into five parts, with most chapters corresponding to a two-hour lecture, the book begins with a unique account of the historical development from Kirchhoff''s law for the black-body radiation to Planck''s quantum hypothesis and Einstein''s discovery of spontaneous emission - providing all the explicit proofs. The subsequent sections deal with matter quantization, ultrashort pulse propagation in 2-level media, cavity nonlinear optics, chi(2) and chi(3) media.
For graduate and PhD students in nonlinear optics or photonics, while also representing a valuable reference for researchers in these fields.
