High Excitation Effects and Nonlinear Optics

  • Claus F. Klingshirn
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


In this and in some of the following chapters we shall leave the regime of linear optics introduced in Sect. 2.3 and proceed to the field of nonlinear optics. Nonlinear optics including high excitation phenomena, laser emission and electro-optics, forms together with the investigation of semiconductors of reduced dimensionality, presently the most active fields in semiconductor science.
