Each author has contributed a paper of current interest inspired by some aspect of Prof Bloembergens 50 year career. This volume contains a historical record of one of the great scientists of the 20th century, including a complete bibliography of his papers, four of his most significant publications and evidence of his impact on generations of scientists.Contents: Reminiscences of Nico: Nico Bloembergen as Mentor in the Golden Age of University Research (J A Armstrong)Spins: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in Metals: A Selective Review of the Beginning (T J Rowland)Stimulated Processes: High Energy Lasers for Inertial Fusion Research and Applications (W H Lowdermilk)Nonlinear Optics and Spectroscopy: Return to the Classics (Y R Shen)A Fascinating Two-Photon Process: Magnetically Induced Quadrupole Second Harmonic Generation (M Matsuoka)Surface and Waveguide Nonlinear Optics: Some of Bloembergens Optical Effects Revisited in Single Micrometer-Sized Droplets (R K Chang)Ultrafast Interactions: Femtosecond Transition-State Absorption Spectroscopy of Atoms Produced by Photodissociation of Gas-Phase Molecules (J A Misewich et al.)Materials Science: Femtosecond Lasers in High Temperature Materials Science: Creating and Probing the Liquid Phase of Carbon (M C Downer et al.)Structure and Dynamics: Surface Studies Using Linear Optics at X Ray Wavelengths (P S Pershan)Four Key Papers of N Bloembergen: Relaxation Effects in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Absorption (N Bloembergen et al.)Proposal for a New Type Solid State Maser (N Bloembergen)Interactions between Light Waves in a Nonlinear Dielectric (J A Armstrong et al.)Nonlinear Optics and Spectroscopy (N Bloembergen)and other papers.Readership: Scientists interested in lasers and nuclear magnetic resonance.
