Fundamentals of Nonlinear Optics

Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Peter E. Powers University of Dayton, Ohio, USA

“... an excellent resource for teaching any student or scientist who needs to use optical systems. I particularly like the addition of MATLAB® scripts and functions. Highly recommended.”

“Peter Powers’s rigorous but simple description of a difficult field keeps the reader’s attention throughout. … The author’s writing style is refreshing and original. I expect that Fundamentals of Nonlinear Optics will fast become popular among students, professors, and professionals interested in basic and applied research in the field.”

Optics for Engineers

—Professor James C. Wyant, Dean of College of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona

“... clear, concise and highly readable. This is an excellent text.” —Professor Changhuei Yang, California Institute of Technology

“At last, a book on optics that is written with the practising engineer in mind. … covers all the important issues from basic theory through lasers and photodetectors to the vital topic of radiometry and measurement.” —Professor John Watson, Chair of Electrical Engineering and Optical Engineering, University of Aberdeen

This book presents the underlying concepts and their applications for engineers who need a practical understanding of how the basic principles of optics affect design decisions. Guiding readers through geometric optics and physical optics, the author includes numerous examples drawn from his experience in the design of laser radars and biomedical optics. • Covers radiometry and photometry, which are essential to determine the feasibility of a particular optical system • Contains a chapter on nonlinear optics, with emphasis on new application areas in microscopy • Incorporates extensive end-of-chapter problems, examples, and appendices to help readers solve real-world problems • Offers downloadable MATLAB code for solving typical optics problems • Highlights the most important and frequently used equations • Includes color figures and more than 500 illustrations

This second edition of a bestseller covers time-varying anisotropic media, frequency and polarization transformer based on a switched magnetoplasma medium in a cavity, and FDTD numerical simulation for timevarying complex medium. Providing a primer on the theory of using magnetoplasmas for the coherent generation of tunable radiation, early chapters use a mathematical model with one kind of complexity— eliminating the need for high-level mathematics. Using plasma as the basic medium to illustrate the transformation of an electromagnetic wave by a complex medium, the text highlights the effects of each kind of complexity in the medium properties.

This book deals with the applied aspects of domain decomposition methods for computational electromagnetics. It provides a valuable bridge between rigorous mathematical treatments and practical software implementation of domain decomposition methods, including the finite domain decomposition method, domain decomposition for integral equation methods, and the multisolver domain decomposition method.

Classical and Quantum Optics by NonInteraction of Waves Chandrasekhar Roychoudhuri University of Connecticut, Storrs, USA

This work explains how the non-interaction of waves principle applies to both classical and quantum optics. Focusing on waves in the linear domain, it explores ambiguous, contradictory, and paradoxical concepts that exist in spite of apparently correct mathematical formulations.

Nonlinear Optics Principles and Applications Karsten Rottwitt Denmark Technical University, Lyngby

Peter TidemandLichtenberg Denmark Technical University, Roskilde

This book describes the fundamental aspects of nonlinear optics from basic principles to examples of applications. Starting from the polarization induced by an electric field in a material, it related the induced polarization to the propagating fields. The properties of the induced polarization is described through a material response expressed both in the time and frequency domain. This also includes a discussion of the spatial symmetry properties relevant for various materials. The coupling between induced polarization and the propagating field as well as new frequency components generated is discussed on the basis of nonlinear propagation equation.

“The third edition continues to set the same standards, but it has been brought right up to date in terms of the available hardware and the growing literature of this rapidly advancing field. … The key areas of the subject are dealt with in comprehensible terms … a standard work for those interested in the field and needing a point of reference. … the book will give [readers] a great deal of help in finding the route through this world of smoke and bendy mirrors.”

“... the fourth edition of the famous textbook written by a world-renowned authority in the field of optical coating. This new edition retains most of the descriptions of older design techniques but also includes a substantial amount of new material. … an excellent treatise of thin film coatings, explaining how to produce all sorts of different filters selected according to the function they are required to play. … an indispensable text for every filter manufacturer and user [and] an excellent guide for students.”

—R.S. Shorter, Contemporary Physics, 52, 2011

“When Bob Tyson’s Principles of Adaptive Optics was first published in 1991, it immediately became the reference text for everyone working in the field. The comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the field, clear explanations, and extensive reference to the original literature ensured its success. This completely revised and updated third edition retains the strengths of the original text. Everyone involved in AO should have a copy on the shelf, and like the original, the extensive list of references (more than 900) provides an excellent pointer to the original literature.” —From the Foreword by Christopher Dainty, National University of Ireland, Galway

This third edition offers a comprehensive guide to the systems, components, and processes of adaptive optics. • Describes many types of optical disturbances and the pros and cons of various adaptive optics system configurations
