Contents Introduction -- Light-driven ordering : theory -- Domain charge structure of amorphous semiconductor -- Light-driven spatial ordering in random media -- Light-driven orientation ordering in random media -- Self-organization in Ge-doped silica fibers and second harmonic generation -- Optical motor : toward the model of life emerging on Earth -- Electron acceleration by petawatt light pulses -- Light-driven temporal self-organization -- Light-driven bistability of molecular crystals -- Charge transfer excitons in soft matter
Summary "This book deals with influencing the properties of solids by light-driven electron transport. The theoretical basis of these effects, light-driven ordering and self-organisation, as well as optical motors are presented. With light as a tool, new ways to produce materials are opened."--Jacket
