Nonlinear Interactions of Light and Matter Without Absorption

  • Ralf Menzel
Part of the Advanced Texts in Physics book series (ADTP)


Nonlinear effects in optics offer the possibility of generating or manipulating light in almost any manner. The laser itself, producing light not available in nature, is the most obvious example. Therefore nonlinear interactions are the basis of photonics.
