Abstract:

The unique physical, optical, and electronic characteristics of novel optical materials are the objects of intense research and applications in optical communication, signal and image processing, and information storage. Until now, however, no single reference offered an up-to-date treatment of the major classes of these materials and their applications in nonlinear optics, integrated optics, electro-optics, optical storage, and information processing. Novel Optical Materials and Applications fills that gap with timely contributions from leading authorities in virtually every subdiscipline of the field. Several of the discussions treat new or emerging applications developed for materials already widely used in other applications, including semiconductors, liquid crystals, polymers, photorefractive crystals, and other specially engineered materials.

The discussion of semiconductors focuses on nanostructures and quantized structures, which possess very high density optoelectronics data- and signal-processing capabilities. They also enable the creation of ever more efficient and broad spectral range lasers and optoelectronics devices. The many applications of liquid crystals have lately been expanded by the discovery of both new material systems and new phenomena. The new systems/phenomena discussed here include dye-doped liquid crystals and waveguide structures. Polymeric materials are viewed in the light of their electro-optical and nonlinear optical properties, which have been exploited in the latest achievements in ultrafast devices for optical modulations and efficient wavelength conversion processes and structures.

The emphasis in the discussion of photorefractive materials is on applications in ultrahigh density optical phase conjugation, holographic storage, optical computing, and neural networks. Novel Optical Materials and Applications is an eye-opening reference for researchers, engineers, and optical and materials scientists in both industry and academia. It is also an excellent supplement and reference for graduate courses in materials science, physics, and optical engineering.
