With this book, we aim to capture different perspectives of researchers on nonlinear optics and optical devices and we intend to cover the latest developments in optics from theoretical, numerical, and experimental aspects. The eleven selected chapters cover a variety of topics related to nonlinear optics including bright, dark, kink solitary waves in various media, magnetic solitons, lattice solitons, rogue-waves, solid-state lasers, laser cladding, optical sensors, optical vortices, and molecular switches. The book is intended to draw the attention of scientists in academia, as well as researchers and engineers in industry, since the field has a significant potential for the production and design of novel optical devices and other technological applications.
