Contemporary Physics
...wide spectrum of breathtaking achievements in the field of quantum electronics and nonliniear optics.
Optical and Quantum Electronics
The various book authors are well distributed between Russia, Western Europe and North America. ... and is produced to a high standard.
Booknews
Colleagues and friends of Akhmanov (1929-1991), a pioneer in quantum electronics and non-linear optics, present 16 papers on some of his favorite topics. Among them are the channelling of atoms in a standing laser light wave, tracking polariton pulses in crystals, and non-linear optical techniques for studying chiral molecules of biological importance.
