Nonlinearities and optics, optoelectronics and fiber communications are discussed systematically in this book. In a unified theoretical treatment, the book addresses the three categories of materials: fibers, semiconductors, and nonlinear crystals. In each case emphasis is placed on the nonlinear character of their refractive indices and optical absorption. The text also gives an in-depth analysis of the uses and limitations of phontonic nonlinearities with regard to wavelength division multiplexing and high-speed fiber communications. It will be of interest to graduate students as well as researchers and engineers in the fields of nonlinear optics and optical communications.

From the reviews:
"This book deals with the classical nonlinear optics. ... the authors describe the field in a very efficient manner: The theory is easily understandable, the methodology is excellent, and many tables and figures help to make the book a useful reference book. It will be of interest to graduate students as well as researchers and engineers in the field of nonlinear optics and optical communication." (Bernd Junge, Optik, Vol. 117, 2006)
