Fundamentals of Nonlinear Optics (Hardcover) (Peter E. Powers & Joseph W. Haus)
about this item
Praise for the 1st Edition:
"well written and up to date…. The problem sets at the end of each chapter reinforce and enhance the material presented, and may give students confidence in handling real-world problems." ?Optics & Photonics News
"rigorous but simple description of a difficult field keeps the reader’s attention throughout…. serves perfectly for an introductory-level course." ?Physics Today
This fully revised edition of the groundbreaking text by the late Peter Powers offers enhanced coverage while remaining the most ‘essentials only’, practical introductory treatment available. Newly added materials, including many new problems and examples, reflect the latest industry developments, and a new final chapter discusses quantization of the electromagnetic field. Problems have been augmented throughout.
Peter E. Powers was professor of Physics and Electro-Optics, and the Brother Leonard A. Mann Chair in the Sciences at the University of Dayton.
Joseph W. Haus is professor of Departments of Electro-Optics and Photonics, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Physics at the University of Dayton.
