PEP 579 Nonlinear Optics

This course is dedicated to give students a working knowledge of the fundamental concepts and modern applications of nonlinear optics in optical communications, lasers, optical metrology, and quantum computing. Through this course, students will gain in-depth understanding and master mathematical tools for modeling nonlinear optical susceptibilities, wave propagation and coupling in nonlinear media, harmonic, sum, and difference frequency generation, parametric amplification and oscillation, phase-conjugation via four-wave mixing, self-phase modulation, and solitons.
