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.

From the reviews: "Indeed, this book also provides an excellent overview of the subject and is an excellent introduction for the non-specialist....will prove useful for many years and that will also survive extensive use during these years. As such it is highly recommended to the reader who wants an in-depth introduction to nonlinear optical materials"
