The theory and practice of the non-linear optics of silicon are inextricably linked with a variety of areas of solid state physics, particularly semiconductor physics. However, the current literature linking these fields is scattered across various sources and is lacking in depth. Second Order Non-linear Optics of Silicon and Silicon Nanostructures describes the physical properties of silicon as they apply to non-linear optics while also covering details of the physics of semiconductors.

The book contains six chapters that focus on:

  • The physical properties and linear optics of silicon
  • Basic theoretical concepts of reflected second harmonics (RSH)
  • The authors’ theory of the generation of RSH at the non-linear medium–linear medium interface
  • An analytical review of work on the non-linear optics of silicon
  • The results of non-linear optical studies of silicon nanostructures
  • A theory of photoinduced electronic processes in semiconductors and their influence on RSH generation

The book also includes methodological problems and a significant amount of reference data. It not only reflects the current state of research but also provides a single, thorough source of introductory information for those who are becoming familiar with non-linear optics. Second Order Non-linear Optics of Silicon and Silicon Nanostructures is a valuable contribution to the fields of non-linear optics, semiconductor physics, and microelectronics, as well as a useful resource for a wide range of readers, from undergraduates to researchers.
