On Plasmonic Superradiance, the Scaling Laws of Spontaneous Parametric Downconversion, and the Principles and Recent Advances in Nonlinear Optics

Saumya Choudhary
This thesis covers three different topics. The first part is a pedagogical review of the basic principles and recent advances in nonlinear optics. It was originally written as a chapter for the proceedings of the “International School of Physics (Enrico Fermi)” summer school on Photonics held in June, 2014. It is included to provide some background information about nonlinear optical processes in general, and is particularly relevant for the third part of this thesis which...
