Unsolicited comments from readers:

There are 25 nonlinear optics books on the market - what makes this one special?

  • Unlike most nonlinear optics books, this one treats in detail realistic 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.
  • Intuitive physical understanding is emphasized:
    • SNLO modeling examples are used to illustrate physical concepts and specific devices.
    • Individual chapters are devoted to various devices: OPO, OPA, sum mixers, et cetera.
  • Written with practical application and quantitative modeling in mind:
    • All equations are in physical SI units.
    • Most equations are derived in detail.
    • The nomenclature and system of units are consistent throughout the book.
