Title: Nonlinear Fiber Optics, 5th Edition
Author: Govind P. AGRAWAL
Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1989, the field of nonlinear fiber optics has virtually exploded. The fifth edition is intended to bring the book up to date so that it remains a unique source of comprehensive coverage on the subject of nonlinear fiber optics. An attempt was made to include recent research results on all topics relevant to the field of nonlinear fiber optics.
Nonlinear Fiber Optics, 5th Edition, provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the nonlinear phenomena occurring inside optical fibers. It retains most of the material that appeared in earlier editions. However, an attempt was made to include recent research results on most topics relevant to the field of nonlinear fiber optics, resulting in an increase in the size of the book. Major changes occur in Chapters 11 and 12. In particular Chapter 12 has been split into two chapters such that the new Chapter 13 is now wholly devoted to the phenomenon of supercontinuum generation. Chapters 11 and 12 have seen major additions because of recent advances in the design of photonic crystal and other microstructure fibers. All other chapters have also been updated, as found appropriate for improving the book.
This revised edition of Nonlinear Fiber Optics should serve well the needs of the scientific community including graduate students in Optics, Physics, and Electrical Engineering, engineers in the optical communication industry, and scientists working in fiber optics and nonlinear optics.
