Fundamentals and Applications of Nonlinear Nanophotonics,
Edition 1
Edited by Nicolae C. Panoiu and Akhlesh Lakhtakia

Publication Date: 12 Sep 2023

Fundamentals and Applications of Nonlinear Nanophotonics includes key concepts of nonlinear nanophotonics, computational and modeling techniques to design these materials, and the latest advances. This book addresses the scientific literature on nanophotonics while most existing books focus almost exclusively on the linear aspects of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale. Sections cover nonlinear optics of sub-wavelength photonic nanostructured materials, review nonlinear optics of bound-states in the continuum, nonlinear optics of chiral plasmonic metasurfaces, nonlinear hyperbolic nanomaterials, nonlinear topological photonics, plasmonic lattice solitons, and more.

This book is suitable for academics and industry professionals working in the discipline of materials science, engineering and nanotechnology.
