Nonlinear Optics and Laser Emission through Random Media - Springer Theses (Paperback)Viola Folli (author)

On the other hand, nonlinearity enriches the physical disciplines and brings them closer to reality with respect to the linear approximation. Nonlinearity allows to stimulate a wide and rich ensemble of optical responses that beautifies the role of matter in the active processes with electromagnetic fields.
Independently of each other, both of these mechanisms foster localization of light. What happens when light enlightens their synergistic interaction?
When pushed together, light, disorder and nonlinearity make new and intriguing phenomena emerge. This text provides a comprehensive investigation of the role of disorder in the nonlinear optical propagation both in transparent media and lasers. Eventually, disorder promotes and enhances complex nonlinear dynamics opening new perspectives in applied research driven by the processes of localization of the electromagnetic field. The first experimental study of laser emission in granular media unveils how randomness magnifies and largely affect laser-matter interactions.
Viola Folli in her research work touches and deepens the leading milestones of the new science named Complex Photonics.

From the reviews:"This 117 pages long monograph from the series `Springer theses', `a selection of the very best Ph.D. thesis from around the world and across the physical sciences', treats the interplay between light and matter in the interaction with intense fields taking into account the rule of nonlinearity and disorder. ... The book is intended for newcomers in this field as well as for professionals who are interested in more detailed background information, and could stimulate new developments."
