Crystal nonlinear optics: with SNLO examples
Hardcover, 726 pages, 16 chapters, 100 SNLO examples, 200 figures, 500 index terms, and 500 references
There are 25 nonlinear optics books on the market - what makes this one special?
- Written by an experimentalist for experimentalists.
- Theory is experimentalist friendly:
- All equations are in physical SI units.
- Most equations are derived in detail.
- The nomenclature and system of units are consistent throughout the book.
- Intuitive physical understanding is emphasized:
- SNLO examples are used to illustrate physical concepts and specific devices.
- Individual chapters are devoted to various devices: OPO, OPA, sum mixers, et cetera.
- Unlike most nonlinear optics books, this one treats in detail real beams, pulses and optical cavities.
- We explain crystal linear and nonlinear optics optics in detail.
- We derive propagation equations for beams and pulses to assist you in developing your own numerical simulations.
- We explain how to design optical cavities and optimize their performance.
What they say - some unsolicited comments from readers:
- "I love your fresh approach and treatment of topics not available elsewhere, like resonated SFG and DFG waves... which will be genuinely useful to me."
- "The way you laid out for each chapter a sequence of examples in SNLO to illustrate the main points is really excellent and amplifies the utility of the book over other texts."
- "It's such a good book and I really enjoy reading it! It really helps me to understand nonlinear optics more in depth and use SNLO more efficiently."
- "I am delighted to read it. It is a great gift for all of us that you put all this invaluable knowledge together in such a detailed and deep book."
- "I encourage anyone working in the field of crystal NLO to buy this book."
