This book offers a self-contained introduction to a new field of applied physics on the frontier between ingrated optics and non-linear wave dynamics. It is intended to help make use of the novel phenomena of non-linear optics in the design of new all-optical circuits. The book mainly deals with third-order non-linear optical phenomena in layered structures, guiding interfaces and channel waveguides. In particular attention is drawn to the concepts of energy dependent periodicity, gyrotropy, reflection, mode conversion and non-reciprocity. This book should be of interest to scientists working on the basic physics of non-linear phenomena, designers and users of non-linear integrated optics looking for information about the latest advances in a new generation of devices, lecturers and students requiring a structured explanation of the phenomena.
