Design stable laser resonators, frequency-locking feedback systems, and pulsed-output mode-locking systems.
Measuring Laser Characteristics
Measure durations of femtosecond pulses and the line width and center frequency of frequency-stabilized sources.
Physics of Lasers
Compute cavity threshold gain, optimal output coupling, and gain saturation.
Describe interactions of light and matter within a semi-classical two-level-atom framework.
Compute cross sections and selection rules for transitions in hydrogen.
