Item description for Fundamentals of Optical Parametric Processes and Oscillations (Laser Science and Technology) by Alice M. Tang...
This is the first book on the basic principles of optical parametric processes and recent results on the rapidly developing optical parametric device technology. Optical parametric devices are powerful solid state sources of broadly tunable coherent radiation, capable of covering the entire spectral range from the near uv to the mid ir, and can operate down to the femtosecond time domain. The book gives a thorough discussion of the theoretical basis of stimulated and spontaneous optical parametric processes and detailed design consideration of optical parametric oscillators and amplifiers, followed by an in-depth review of the materials properties of the most important nonlinear optical crystals for such applications. It concludes with a review of the recent developments on practical low repetition-rate nanosecond optical parametric oscillators and broadly tunable high-repetition rate continuous-pulse-train femtosecond optical parametric oscillators from the uv to the mid ir.
