Book description

The first book on the topic, and written by the founder of the technique, this comprehensive resource provides a detailed overview of sum-frequency spectroscopy, its fundamental principles, and the wide range of applications for surfaces, interfaces, and bulk. Beginning with an overview of the historical context, and introductions to the basic theory of nonlinear optics and surface sum-frequency generation, topics covered include discussion of different experimental arrangements adopted by researchers, notes on proper data analysis, an up-to-date survey commenting on the wide range of successful applications of the tool, and a valuable insight into current unsolved problems and potential areas to be explored in the future. With the addition of chapter appendices that offer the opportunity for more in-depth theoretical discussion, this is an essential resource that integrates all aspects of the subject and is ideal for anyone using, or interested in using, sum-frequency spectroscopy.


'This work is a powerful adjunct to [Shen's] definitive The Principles of Nonlinear Optics (1984) … The writing is Spartan in its simplicity yet elegant in its clarity, and suggestive of Shen’s abiding interest in teaching and research. Wisely, the author uses appendixes at the end of most chapters to isolate extended proofs and theoretical analysis. Also, there is a useful selection of frequently asked questions about SF spectroscopy. This monograph further burnishes the already outstanding reputation of the 'Molecular Science' series editors and Cambridge University Press.'
