PHYS 45300: PHYSICAL PHOTONICS I/LASER OPTICS
Theory and applications of lasers and masers. Physical principles underlying the design of lasers, coherent optics, and non-linear optics. Pre-or coreq.: a course in modern physics (PHYS 55100 or PHYS 32100), a course in electricity and magnetism (PHYS 35400 or EE 33200). Optics (PHYS 45200) is desirable but not required (elective for Physics and Engineering majors). 3 hr./wk.; 3 cr.
