Paper Abstract

This is the second of a two volume work. Volume 1, which deals primarily with linear optics, was previously critiqued by this reviewer [Optical Engineering 25(7), p. SR- 133, July 1986]. Volume 2 deals with nonlinear optics. According to the authors, both of these volumes were developed as teaching texts for the academic program at the Optical Sciences Center, University of Arizona. They state that the design for both is modular and suggest that there is considerable flexibility in the order in which they can be read or taught. For practical applications, the authors say, Vol. 2 can be used without Vol. 1. The approach of Vol. 2 "emphasizes those aspects of nonlinear optics which have proved to be of most value over the past two decades, and are therefore likely to continue to be of importance in the future."
