This volume explores non-linear optical materials, which play a pivotal role in the future evolution of non-linear optics in general and its impact on technology and industrial applications in particular. The progress in non-linear optics has been tremendous since the first demonstration of an all-optical non-linear effect in the early 1960s but, until recently, the main visible emphasis was on the physical aspects of the non-linear radiation matter interaction. In the last decade, however, this effort has also brought its fruits in applied aspects of non-linear optics. This can be essentially traced to the improvement of the performances of the non-linear optical materials.
