Nonlinear optics
There are two reasons for being interested in nonlinear optics. Does it tell us anything about the structure of materials? And secondly, can it be used in the production and handling of optical radiation? As an applied physicist it is the latter which principally interests me and in this article I will describe nonlinear devices which use the square law nonlinearity. These include harmonic generators, up-converters and down-converters, and parametric amplifiers and oscillators. First however, we must learn a little basic nonlinear optics.

Abstract

There are two reasons for being interested in nonlinear optics. Does it tell us anything about the structure of materials? And secondly, can it be used in the production and handling of optical radiation? As an applied physicist it is the latter which principally interests me and in this article I will describe nonlinear devices which use the square law nonlinearity. These include harmonic generators, up-converters and down-converters, and parametric amplifiers and oscillators. First however, we must learn a little basic nonlinear optics.
