About this book

This book reviews recent advances in one of the most prominent fields of physics. The optics of random media displays a rich variety of effects, and some of these effects are hardly intuitive. Localization of various sorts of optical excitations occur and recur in a wide gamut of disordered systems, such as inhomogeneous media, nanocomposite materials, layered structures, metal films and metal-dielectric composites. The contributors to the book are world best experts in the optics of random media; they provide a state-of-the-art review of recent developments in the field including nonlinear optical and magneto-optical properties, Raman and hyper-Raman scattering, laser action, plasmon excitation and localized giant fields, imaging and spectroscopy of random media.

Reviews

OPTICS & PHOTONICS NEWS

"The authors of these collected papers make an excellent contribution to the discussion. Each chapter is well-structured, with up-to-date, in-depth theoretical and experimental analyses and extensive references. Among the topics covered: fractal-microcavity composites, random lasers with coherent feedback and nonlinear optical responses in metal-dielectric composites. The book will be appreciated by engineers in quantum electronics and chemical engineers working in the area of materials process technologies and nanostructured materials."
