About this book

Nonlinear-optic (NLO) effects provide many device functions such as wavelength conversion and signal processing. The use of waveguides allows the implementation of efficient and compact devices. This book presents a systematic description of this area with an emphasis on devices that use ferroelectric waveguides. The earlier chapters give an introduction on the concepts of waveguides, NLO devices, coupled-mode formalism- and phase matching. Then, various NLO interactions and the related characteristics are elucidated. The fabrication of waveguides and structures for quasi-phase matching are then discussed. The text progresses to a survey of device implementations and applications. Short-wavelength-generation devices, wavelength converters for WDM photonic networks, optical parametric amplifiers, and ultrafast signal processing devices are discussed, including the most recent experimental results.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book offers a comprehensive and systematic description of waveguide nonlinear-optic devices, encompassing basic concepts, theoretical analysis … and their applications, including the most recent results. … a useful reference for professionals in their review of the subarea. … This book is really a very good and very useful one. It will provide a lot of information to many different users. It is very well documented specially about applications." (Yvon Renotte, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (3), 2005)
