Beschreibungen

Nonlinear Optical Crystals contains the most complete and up-to-date reference material on properties of nonlinear optical crystals including:

Traditional and specific applications

The mathematical formulas necessary for the calculation of the frequency conversion process

A survey of 63 nonlinear optical crystals containing more than 1500 different references with full titles

Recent applications of common and novel nonlinear materials, including quasi-phase matching

Special consideration for periodically-poled and self-frequency-doubling materials

Significant amount of crystallophysical, thermophysical, spectroscopic, electro-optic and magneto-optic information
Nonlinear optical techniques are now recognized as the most efficient means available to generate laser radiation at wavelengths that are presently inaccessible via conventional sources. This technology uses nonlinear optical crystals for the frequency conversion of laser light. The book contains the most complete and up to date reference material on properties of nonlinear optical crystals, describes their applications, both traditional and specific, and provides the main mathematical formulas necessary for the calculation of the frequency conversion process. It is a vital source of information for scientists and engineers dealing with modern applications of nonlinear optical crystals in quantum electronics, optoelectronics and laser physics.
Basic Nonlinear Optical Crystals.- Main Infrared Materials.- Often-Used Crystals.- Periodically Poled Crystals and “Wafer” Materials.- Newly Developed and Perspective Crystals.- Self-Frequency-Doubling Crystals.- Rarely Used and Archive Crystals.- Some Recent Applications.- Concluding Remarks.
 The author has more than 30 years experience in nonlinear optics, laser physics and quantum electronics. He has published more than 120 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 5 books and 7 book chapters. His first review on nonlinear optical crystals was published in 1977 (Sov.J.Quantum Electronics, vol.4, pp. 5-26) and the twenty years later selected as a MILESTONE publication (see SPIE Milestone Series, vol MS140, Selected Papers on Optical Parametric Oscillators and Amplifiers and Their Applications, ed. by J.H.Hunt, pp.191-203, 1997).
Nonlinear optical crystals are widely used in modern optical science and technology for frequency conversion of laser light, i.e. to generate laser radiation at any specific wavelength in visible, UV or IR spectral regions.

This unrivalled reference book contains the most complete and up-to-date information on properties of nonlinear optical crystals. It includes:

* Database of 63 common and novel nonlinear optical crystals
* Periodically-poled and self-frequency-doubling materials
* Full description of linear and nonlinear optical properties
* Significant amount of crystallophysical, thermophysical, spectroscopic, electro-optic and magneto-optic information
* 7 mini-reviews on novel applications, such as deep-UV light generation, terahertz-wave generation, ultrashort laser pulse compression, photonic band-gap crystals, x3 nonlinearity, etc.
* More than 1500 different references with full titles

It is a vital source of information for scientists and engineers dealing with modern applications of nonlinear optical crystals in quantum electronics, photonics, optoelectronics and laser physics.
