About the book

The observation of nonlinear optical effects started with the discovery of the laser in 1960 as a source of high-intensity coherent radiation [1], [2]. Nonlinear optics is the study of the nonlinear light and matter interaction effects such as the light self-focusing and self-trapping, second harmonic generation (SHG), third-harmonic generation (THG), four-wave mixing (FWM), parametric processes, different types of stimulated light scattering (SLS), soliton generation and propagation, etc. [1], [2]. The nonlinear optical phenomena are widely used in modern communication systems for such applications as the generation of ultra-short pulses, all-optical signal processing, and ultrafast switching [2], [3]. Recently, new fields of nonlinear optics emerged such as strong-field nano-optics, nonlinear plasmonics, and nonlinear metamaterials [3]-[8].

The subject of this book is the publication of novel theoretical and experimental results concerning the nonlinear optical phenomena in photonic and plasmonic nanostructures, nonlinear metamaterials including liquid crystals, and devices based on nonlinear optical waveguides. In particular, the following topics will be considered: the interaction of solid-state nanostructures with the intense electromagnetic fields, the surface plasmon polariton propagation and interaction near the metal-dielectric interface, active nanophotonic devices for lasing and optical sources, nonlinear metamaterials, the nonlinear optics of liquid crystals and the possible combination of liquid crystals with plasmonic and metamaterials. We hope that the proposed book will be interesting for researchers and engineers occupied in optical fiber telecommunications, optical signal processing, novel active materials, and devices.
