Accordingly, they have been observed in disparate settings – as ocean waves, in nonlinear optics, in Bose-Einstein condensates, and in plasmas. Rogue and dispersive shock waves are both characterized by the development of extremes: for the former, the wave amplitude becomes unusually large, while for the latter, gradients reach extreme values.   Nonlinear Optics and Applications Nonlinear optics is the result of laser beam interaction with materials and started with the advent of lasers in the early s. The field is growing daily and plays a major role in emerging photonic technology.
