Studying Nonlinear Optics Starting Point

  1. Jul 19, 2016 #1
    I am currently an undergrad studying physics and am doing research on PPLN and nonlinear optics. I have a basic understanding of the math involved with my research, but would like to know more on nonlinear optics and why these materials behave the way they do. I am currently reading "Fundamentals of Nonlinear Optics" by Peter Powers. I was wondering if there are any resources or textbooks to help better explain this topic.

    That book seems reasonable enough to start. Chapters 3 and 5 cover what you are interested in. Is there something specific that is not well covered, or is there some other specific deficiency you are trying to remediate?
