Behörighet:

För kurser inom Chalmers utbildningsprogram gäller samma behörighetskrav som till de(t) program kursen ingår i.

Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Basic knowledge of physics and electromagnetic fields.

Syfte

This course aims to efficiently introduce the main principles of laser physics and laser technology and to give a basic knowledge of the most commonly used laser types and their applications. After completing the course one will have achieved a rewarding understanding and overview of the basics of laser engineering as well as insight into the latest state-of-the-art developments of this technology.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)


● Describe qualitatively and quantitatively the function of a laser
● Predict the performance of a laser, regarding such aspects as output power, mode characteristics and dynamics
● Design a laser and/or choose a commercial laser with characteristics optimized for a given application
● Describe qualitatively a wide range of laser applications, including laser specification requirement, and discuss the use of a laser contra alternative system solutions
● Formulate specific safety limitations for exposure to laser radiation
● Operate and perform measurements on lasers including output power, mode characteristics and dynamics
