About this product
- DescriptionThe field of nlinear optics, which has undergone a very rapid development since the discovery of lasers in the early sixties, continues to be an active and rapidly developing - search area. The interest is mainly due to the potential applications of nlinear optics: - rectly in telecommunications for high rate data transmission, image processing and recognition or indirectly from the possibility of obtaining large wavelength range tuneable lasers for applications in industry, medicine, biology, data storage and retrieval, etc. New phemena and materials continue to appear regularly, renewing the field. This has proven to be especially true over the last five years. New materials such as organics have been developed with very large second- and third-order nlinear optical responses. Imp- tant developments in the areas of photorefractivity, all optical phemena, frequency conv- sion and electro-optics have been observed. In parallel, a number of new phemena have been reported, some of them challenging the previously held concepts. For example, solitons based on second-order nlinearities have been observed in photorefractive materials and frequency doubling crystals, destroying the perception that third order nlinearities are - quired for their generation and propagation. New ways of creating and manipulating nl- ear optical materials have been developed. An example is the creation of highly nlinear (second-order active) polymers by static electric field, photo-assisted or all-optical poling. Nonlinear optics involves, by definition, the product of electromagnetic fields. As a con- quence, it leads to the beam control.
