  • 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...

  • Polarization Mode Dispersionby Andrea Galtarossa; Curtis R. Menyuk

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 339.00

    Contains a series of tutorial essays on polarization mode dispersion (PMD) by the leading experts in the field. This book covers topics such as mathematical representation of PMD, how to properly model PMD in numerical simulations, how to accurately measure PMD, how to infer fiber properties from polarization measurements, and more. more...

  • 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...

  • New Directions In Physicsby N. Metropolis

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    New Directions in Physics represents a fascinating view of the future as seen by some of the remarkable men who were here over 40 years ago. It makes it quite clear that we are still in the dawn of physics-the excitement and challenge that lie ahead are extraordinary. We also get a glimpse of where these remarkable men have been since the end of Project... more...

  • Optical Bistability: Controlling Light With Lightby Hyatt Gibbs

    Elsevier Science 1985; US$ 72.95

    Optical Bistability: Controlling Light with Light focuses on optical bistability in nonlinear optical systems. Emphasis is on passive (non-laser) systems that exhibit reversible bistability with input intensity as the hysteresis variable, along with the physics and the potential applications of such systems for nonlinear optical signal processing.... more...

  • Nonlinear Opticsby Partha P. Banerjee

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 231.00

    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

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 304.00

    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$ 150.00

    What happens to light when it is trapped in a box? Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics addresses a fascinating question in physics: what happens to light, and in particular to its interaction with matter, when it is trapped inside a box? With the aid of a model-building approach, readers discover the answer to this question and come to appreciate its important... more...
