Nonlinear Optics

Edited by Natalia Kamanina

St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University (“LETI”)

Rapid development of optoelectronic devices and laser techniques poses an important task of creating and studying, from one side, the structures capable of effectively converting, modulating, and recording optical data in a wide range of radiation energy densities and frequencies, from another side, the new schemes and approaches capable to activate and simulate the modern features. It is well known that nonlinear optical phenomena and nonlinear optical materials have the promising place to resolve these complicated technical tasks. The advanced idea, approach, and information described in this book will be fruitful for the readers to find a sustainable solution in a fundamental study and in the industry approach. The book can be useful for the students, post-graduate students, engineers, researchers and technical officers of optoelectronic universities and companies.
