Morgner; Mon 11:00 – 12:00, Wed 10:00 – 12:00, room F342 (1101); Exercises Mon 12:00 – 13:00, room F342 (1101)
- Introduction to the basics (linear and nonlinear polarization, wave equation, basic equations of nonlinear optics, microscopic theory of susceptibilities)
- Nonlinear effects in anisotropic media (crystal optics, phase-matching, quasi-phase-matching, Second Harmonic Generation, parametric amplification, electro-optic effects)
- Nonlinear effects in isotropic media (frequency multiplying, nonlinear refractive index, Raman process, solitons)
- Special nonlinear optic effects and applications (radiative interactions at high intensities, self-focusing, self-phase modulation, generation of high harmonics)
