From the reviews:
"Slusher and Eggleton have persuaded the world's leading experts to contribute significant original articles and chapters to this book. Among the interesting effects represented here are soliton-like pulse propagation; polarization instability; gap solitons, particularly as driven by Raman-type nonlinearities; slow light; and self-induced transparency ... This volume is an excellent accomplishment, brining together many authors in a common and consistent theme in a rapidly developing field."
"The book provides an overview of mostly one-dimensional nonlinear photonic crystals ... . It has a good index and numerous references to earlier work in the field of nonlinear photonic crystals. ... I recommend the book particularly to postgraduates who seek a well referenced and structured overview of this subject, as well as to specialists in the field of photonic crystals who want to expand their research in nonlinear directions." (Alexander Moroz, OPN - Optics & Photonics News, April, 2005)
"In the world of linear photonic crystals, significant breakthroughs are currently being made ... . Hence, a need for specialization, as in this well-edited collection, Nonlinear Photonic Crystals, which ponders the nonlinear optical properties of photonic crystals. ... Slushers and Eggleton have persuaded the world's leading experts to contribute significant original articles and chapters to this book. ... This volume is an excellent accomplishment, bringing together many authors in a common and consistent theme in a rapidly developing new field." (Eli Yablonovitch, Materials Today, March, 2004)
