Course review:
Maxwell equations in a nonlinear dielectric medium (vector of polarization in a nonlinear medium, nonlinear dielectric susceptibilities, their properties, dispersion in nonlinear media, materials for nonlinear optics) -Classification of nonlinear optical phenomena -Nonlinear phenomena of the first order (interaction of three waves, generation of the second harmonic and subharmonic waves, ascending and descending frequency conversion, parametric generation and amplification, quantum description, superfluorescence, laws of conservation) -Phase matching (direction, influence of phase mistuning, tuning of frequencies, generation of non-classical light) -Nonlinear phenomena of high orders (Raman scattering and hyper-Raman scattering, Brillouin scattering) -Interaction of four waves (phase configuration, Kerr effect, photorefraction, self-focusing of laser beams) -Self-guided nonlinear beam (optical time and spatial soliton, soliton laser) -Many-photon absorption and emission (many-photon laser) -Optical bistability (dispersive and absorptive) -Transition coherent phenomena (self-induced transparence, photon echo) -Superradiation (cooperative spontaneous emission)
