About this book


Nonlinear Optical Effects and Materials describes progress achieved in the field of nonlinear optics and nonlinear optical materials. Selected topics such as photorefractive materials, third-order nonlinear optical materials and organic nonlinear optical crystals, as well as electro-optic polymers are treated. Applications of photorefractive materials in optical memories, optical processing, and guided-wave nonlinear optics in photorefractive waveguides are described.
As light will play a more and more dominant role as an information carrier, the review of existing and new materials given here makes this book quite a keystone in this area.
