This selection of papers in the field of nonlinear optics contains reprints of original research, and general reviews written since 1960 up to the present. Brief comments by the author place each paper in a historical context of the evolution of nonlinear optics. Papers are selected from a more comprehensive bibliography either on the basis of their influence on subsequent developments or because they were originally published in journals or conference proceedings which are less easily accessible.

Reviews - What do customers think about Encounters in Nonlinear Optics: Selected Papers of Nicolaas Bloembergen (With Commentary) (World Scientific Series in 20th Century Physics, Vol. 16)?
A historical review Oct 15, 2000
The book reprints most of the Nobel prize winner Bloembergen's work in the field of nonlinear optics. Those of the papers in this volume can be found in the library. However, with the author's commentary, one can understand the motivation and direction of each work and the interesting thing presented. For students and researchers in the field, it may not be much useful as the works came from early 60s to late 80s. The first few papers review the basic of nonlinear optics, which are suitable for the new fresher. The book contains much work on topics in the past, but not the current "heat" one. Therefore, it's not useful for the active researchers in the field. But for those who are interested in the development from the past to present, you can have some insight from it.
