The birth of the field of nonlinear optics occurred in Randall Laboratory at the University of Michigan in 1961 when Franken, Hill, Peters, and Weinreich observed for the first time the generation of optical harmonics. This discovery was rapidly followed by the observation of numerous other nonlinear effects such as optical rectification, frequency mixing, self-focusing, and parametric oscillation. In this talk we review the physics, birth, growth, and modern day applications of nonlinear optics.
