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.
