 Summary

The history of optical design has engendered theoretical work originating in different countries, and using different nomenclature and sign conventions. Michael Kidger was adept at selecting topics that would be useful in the mainstream of optical design, reducing theory to the essentials and rewriting it using a common nomenclature and sign convention. This work, published after Kidger's death with the help of his colleagues, provides all the essential and best elements of his courses taught worldwide on lens and optical design.

Fundamentals of Nonlinear Optics encompasses a broad spectrum of nonlinear phenomena from secondharmonic generation to soliton formation. The wide use of nonlinear optical phenomena in laboratories and commercial devices requires familiarity with the underlying physics as well as practical device considerations. This text adopts a combined approach to analyze the complimentary aspects of nonlinear optics, enabling a fundamental understanding of both a given effect and practical device applications. After a review chapter on linear phenomena important to nonlinear optics, the book tackles nonlinear phenomena with a look at the technologically important processes of secondharmonic generation, sumfrequency and differencefrequency generation, and the electrooptic effect. The author covers these processes in considerable detail at both theoretical and practical levels as the formalisms developed for these effects carry to subsequent topics, such as fourwave mixing, selfphase modulation, Raman scattering, Brillouin scattering, and soliton formation. Consistently connecting theory, process, effects, and applications, this introductory text encourages students to master key concepts and to solve nonlinear optics problemspreparing them for more advanced study. Along with extensive problems at the end of each chapter, it presents general algorithms accessible to any scientific graphical and programming package. Watch the author speak about the book.
