There is a great deal of interest in discovering materials having significant yet fast nonlinearities. As a result, this database requires expansion. Throughout the book section, methods for determining nonlinear coefficients are described. This interest, which is largely motivated The look for materials for applications such as sensor protection and all-optical switching results in two categories: nonlinear absorption (NLA) and nonlinear refraction (NLR). In many situations, the database for nonlinear optical characteristics of materials, particularly organic materials, is insufficient for establishing trends to guide synthesis efforts.Organic nonlinear optics offers numerous exciting opportunities for basic study as well as real-world applications. Similar to other high-tech industries microelectronics and genetic engineering are two examples. Technical and scientific advances are likely to interact fundamentally in a way that promotes improvements in the other. Nonlinear optical phenomena, for example, are increasingly being used in optical and laser technology.
