The aim of the course “Advanced Optics and Lasers” is to give students knowledge on techniques for creating and manipulating laser light and laser pulses This course provides both theoretical and hands on experience of lasers and non-linear optics. It goes from the basics to the research front within some aspects of the physics of lasers. The students will be exposed to lasers providing ultrashort pulses, non-linear crystals and light modulators.
The course includes: Frequency conversion, fast amplitude modulation, frequency modulation and mode-locking and photon optics. It is an A level course, optional for F4, E4, N4, Pi4, also adapted for students of the Science faculty.
