PH485 (Version: 2020 1) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
PH485 LASER PHYSICS 2020 1 Physics and Nuclear Engineering 3.0 (BS=3.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course provides a combined theoretical and experimental investigation into the realm of coherent optical radiation generation, amplification, propagation, and application. Cadets apply the basic principles of electromagnetism, optics, and modern physics to analyze specific laser systems. Emphasis is placed on evaluation of laser systems, and experiments are performed to demonstrate properties of specific systems. Selected topics in modern optical engineering are explored to illustrate basic applications of various systems. Laser theory is investigated using semiclassical methods.
