Nonlinear Optics

Nonlinear Optics

Rapid development of optoelectronic devices and laser techniques poses an important task of creating and studying, from one side, the structures capable of effectively converting, modulating, and recording optical data in a wide range of radiation energy densities and frequencies, from another side, the new schemes and approaches capable to activate and simulate the modern features. Topics covered includes: Stimulated Raman Scattering in Quantum Dots and Nanocomposite Silicon Based Materials, Reflection and Transmission of a Plane TE-Wave at a Lossy, Saturating, Nonlinear Dielectric Film, Nonlinear Ellipsometry by Second Harmonic Generation, Stimulated Raman Scattering in Quantum Dots and Nanocomposite Silicon Based Materials, Nonlinear Ellipsometry by Second Harmonic Generation, Donor-Acceptor Conjugated Polymers and Their Nanocomposites for Photonic Applications.

Physics of Light and Optics

Physics of Light and Optics

This curriculum was originally developed for a senior-level optics course in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Brigham Young University. Topics are addressed froma physics perspective and include the propagation of light in matter, reflection and transmission at boundaries, polarization effects, dispersion, coherence, ray optics and imaging, diffraction, and the quantumnature of light. Students using this book should be familiar with differentiation, integration, and standard trigonometric and algebraic manipulation.
