This book provides a comprehensive presentation on most of the major topics in nonlinear optics and photonics, with equal emphasis on principles, experiments, techniques, and applications. It covers many major new topics including optical solitons, multi-photon effects, nonlinear photoelectriceffects, fast and slow light , and Terahertz photonics. Chapters 1-10 present the fundamentals of modern nonlinear optics, and could be used as a textbook with problems provided at the end of each chapter. Chapters 11-17 cover the more advanced topics of techniques and applications of nonlinear optics and photonics, serving as a highly informativereference for researchers and experts working in related areas. There are also 16 pages of color photographs to illustrate the visual appearances of some typical nonlinear optical effects and phenomena. The book could be adopted as a textbook for both undergraduates and graduate students, and serve as a useful reference work for researchers and experts in the fields of physics, quantum electronics, and laser technology.
Guang S. He is a research scientist who has worked largely in the field of nonlinear optics and photonics for more than forty years. From 1969-1986 he was a research scientist at Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Since 1986 he has pursued his research career in the USA, worked first in the P...

Editorial Reviews

"Nonlinear Optics and Photonics is written by a hands-on experimentalist, but it contains enough rigorous formulae and derivations to be helpful for quantitative understanding of the physical principles underlying the phenomena described. It is fundamental enough, but also sufficientlyup-to-date, to be used both as an introductory text for students and as a reference for those already working in the area." --Marek Samoc, Wroclaw University of Technology
