Lecture Notes on Nonlinear Optics
by Fredrik Jonsson
Number of pages: 168
Nonlinear optics is the discipline in physics in which the electric polarization density of the medium is studied as a nonlinear function of the electromagnetic field of the light. This course is intended as an introduction to the wide field of phenomena encountered in nonlinear optics.

These lecture notes cover some basic topics in nonlinear optics, they accompany lectures held for the Ph. D. students. The first part gives a short introduction to the physics of crystals and the treatment of symmetry-dependent properties.

This text provides an introduction to the quantum theory of optics in nonlinear dielectric media. We begin with a short summary of the classical theory of nonlinear optics, that is nonlinear optics done with classical fields.

These notes cover the fundamentals of quantum and nonlinear optics. The foundations of quantum optics include quantization of the electromagnetic field and many-particle theories, interaction between atoms and photons, few-level models for atoms...
