Nonlinear optical devices Devices that use the fact that the polarization in any real medium is a nonlinear function of the optical field strength to implement various useful functions. The nonlinearities themselves can be grouped roughly into second-order and third-order.

Since general nonlinear equations cannot be solved in closed form, iterative methods must be used. Such methods generate a sequence of approximations, or iterates, that will converge to a solution under specified conditions. Newton’s method is one of the best-known methods and is the basis for many of the fastest methods for solving the nonlinear programming problem. If F(x) = 0 is one equation in one unknown, Newton’s method for solving this problem produces the next iterate, x(k+1), from the current iterate, x (k), by formula (5), x (k+1) = x(k) − F x (k) (5) F x(k) where F (x (k)) is the derivative of F with respect to x evaluated at x(k).

Nonmetal The elements are conveniently, but arbitrarily, divided into metals and nonmetals. The nonmetals do not conduct electricity readily, are not ductile, do Non-newtonian fluid not have a complex refractive index, and in general have high ionization potentials. The nonmetals vary widely in physical properties. Hydrogen is a colorless permanent gas; bromine is a dark-red, volatile liquid; and carbon, as diamond, is a solid of great hardness and high refractive index.
