  • Extreme Nonlinear Opticsby Martin Wegener

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 139.00

    Following the birth of the laser in 1960, the field of "nonlinear optics" rapidly emerged.Today, laser intensities and pulse durations are readily available, for which the concepts and approximations of traditional nonlinear optics no longer apply. In this regime of "extreme nonlinear optics," a large variety of novel and unusual... more...

  • Mechanical Action of Light on Atomsby A.P. Kazantsev; G.I. Surdutovich

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 99.00

    Control of atomic motion with resonant laser light is the most interesting field of research which is rapidly expanding. The book discusses the latest theoretical and experimental achievements in the study of these phenomena. The fundamental questions of the theory of resonant light pressure are given in the book. They are: 1. Optical Stern-Gerlach... more...

    Springer 1998; US$ 247.00

    Comprises 15 papers from an August 1997 study institute addressing new developments in a field which has direct potential applications in telecomunications (for high rate data transmission, image processing, and recognition), as well as indirect potential for the application of large wavelength rang more...

  • Nonlinear Opticsby Partha P. Banerjee

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 243.00

    Nonlinear Optics probes in great depth quadratic and cubic nonlinearities, photorefractive nonlinear optics, the nonlinear optical properties of nematic liquid crystals, and photonic bandgap structures. This reference places core physical principles and theoretical concepts in dialogue with contemporary applications and research and presents the... more...

  • Handbook of Nonlinear Opticsby Richard L. Sutherland

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 319.00

    Examining classic theories, experimental methods, and practical formulas for exploration of the core topics in nonlinear optics, the second edition of this acclaimed text was extensively revised to reflect recent advances in the analysis and modification of material properties for application in frequency conversion, optical switching and limiting,... more...

  • Cavity Quantum Electrodynamicsby Sergio M. Dutra

    Wiley 2005; US$ 155.00

    SERGIO M. DUTRA's passion for quantum optics dates back to 1989. He received a PhD from Imperial College, London, studying cavity quantum electrodynamics. Dr. Dutra is a Chartered Physicist and a member of the British Institute of Physics. He has worked at Campinas University in Brazil and Leiden University in the Netherlands, published a number... more...

  • Polarization in spectral linesby E. Landi Degl'Innocenti

    Springer 2004; US$ 269.00

    The scientific research based on spectropolarimetric techniques is undergoing a phase of rapid growth. Instruments of unprecedented sensitivity are nowadays available, particularly for solar observations. To fully exploit the rich diagnostic content of such observations, it is necessary to understand the physical mechanisms involved in the generation... more...

  • Foundations Of Photonic Crystal Fibresby Frédéric Zolla; Gilles Renversez; André Nicolet; Boris Kuhlmey; Sébastien Guenneau

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 163.00

    This book aims to provide expert guidance to researchers experienced in classical technology, as well as to those new to the field. A variety of perspectives on Photonic Crystal Fibres (PCFs) is presented together with a thorough treatment of the theoretical, physical and mathematical foundations of the optics of PCFs. The range of expertise of the... more...

  • Polarised Light in Science and Natureby J. David Pye

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 65.95

    We humans cannot see when light is polarized and this leads to unfortunate misapprehensions about this aspect of nature. Even scientists who should know better often assume that it is an obscure topic of specialized interest in only a few rather isolated areas. In fact, it is a universal feature of our world and most natural light is at least partially... more...
