Nonlinear Optics will have lasting appeal to a wide audience of physics, optics, and electrical engineering students, as well as to working researchers and engineers. Those in related fields, such as materials science and chemistry, will also find this book of particular interest. Nonlinear optics (NLO) is the branch of optics that describes the behaviour of light in nonlinear media, that is, media in which the polarization density P responds non-linearly to the electric field E of the light. The non-linearity is typically observed only at very high light intensities (values of atomic electric fields, typically 10 8 V/m) such as those provided by lasers. May 04, · However, when it comes to the foundational elements of nonlinear optics, the book is always thorough and the concepts well explained. Boyd clearly has a very deep understanding of the subject, and this shows in his writing. If you need to buy one book /5(15). May 13, · Nonlinear optics is the study of the interaction of intense laser light with matter. The third edition of this textbook has been rewritten to conform to the standard SI system of units and includes comprehensively updated material on the latest developments in the field. The book presents an introduction to the entire field of optical physics and specifically the area of nonlinear optics.
The book contains a lot of information, a rich bibliographical survey and a broad spectrum of different problems and aspects of molecular nonlinear optics while Cited by: Molecular Nonlinear Optics. Materials, Physics, and Devices Joseph Zyss, Paul Kelley and Paul F. Liao (Auth.) Year: You can write a book review and share your experiences. Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts. Quadratic Molecular Nonlinearities at the Air/Water Interface / Y. R. Shen -- Ch. 4. Advances in Molecular Engineering for Quadratic Nonlinear Optics / Joseph Zyss, Isabelle Ledoux and Jean Francois Nicoud -- Ch. 5. Quadratic Nonlinear Optical Effects in Crystalline Waveguiding Structures / Takashi Kondo and Ryoichi Ito -- Ch. 6. The theory of molecular nonlinear optics based on the sum-over-states (SOS) model is reviewed. The interaction of radiation with a single wtpisolated molecule is treated by first-order perturbation theory, and expressions are derived for the linear (αij) polarizability and nonlinear (βijk, γijkl) molecular hyperpolarizabilities in terms of the properties of the molecular states and the.
