Nonlinear optics has been a rapidly growing field in recent decades. It is based on the study of effects and phenomena related to the interaction of intense coherent light radiation with matter.Physics of Nonlinear Optics describes various major nonlinear optical effects, including physical principles, experimental techniques, up-to-date research achievements, and current or potential applications. This book features clear conceptual descriptions, concise formulations, and emphasizes both theoretical and experimental aspects of nonlinear optics. The readability of this book is particularly enhanced by a series of color photographs showing the spectacular appearances of various nonlinear optical effects.Both authors of this book are outstanding research scientists renowned in their professional areas. Their major research achievements in nonlinear optics include the pioneering studies of two-wave-coupled refractive-index change, Raman-enhanced self-focusing, optical-frequency Pockels effect, stimulated Kerr scattering, optical phase-conjugation via backward stimulated emission, and two-photon-absorption based optical limiting, stabilization and reshaping.


Introduction to nonlinear optics; fundamental knowledge of nonlinear polarization; second-order nonlinear wave mixing; third-order nonlinear wave mixing; intense light induced refractive-index changes; photorefractive effects; self-focusing, self-phase modulation, and spectral self-broadening; stimulated scattering of intense light; optical phase-conjugation; optical coherent transient effects; nonlinear spectroscopic effects; optical bistability; optical limiting, stabilization and reshaping; vigorous theory of nonlinear susceptibilities.
