#### Extreme Nonlinear Optics

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

#### Frontiers of Optical Spectroscopy

Springer 2006; US$ 239.00Advanced spectroscopic techniques allow the probing of very small systems and very fast phenomena, conditions that can be considered "extreme" at the present status of our experimentation and knowledge. Quantum dots, nanocrystals and single molecules are examples of the former and events on the femtosecond scale examples of the latter. The... more...
