Nonlinear optics in signal processing

Eason, R.W. and Millar, A. (1992) Nonlinear optics in signal processing, London, GB, Chapman and Hall, 432pp. (Engineering Aspects of Lasers Series 3).

Record type: Book


Nonlinear Optics in Signal Processing: This covers the applications of nonlinear optics to optical processing in a range of areas including switching, computing, and telecommunications. Each chapter presents the physics behind optical interactions between light and a range of materials and then examines the applications of the effects discussed. The book provides a comprehensive review of this expanding area and discusses the likely direction of future research.

Contents: Introduction. Nonlinearities in organic solids. Semiconductors. The photorefractive effect. Optical bistability. Optical processing using phase conjugation. Architectures for optical neural networks. Third order nonlinear guided-wave optical devices. Nonlinearity in optical fibre communications. Ultrashort pulses for nonlinear optical techniques.
