describe and explain fundamental concepts in laser physics
compare the function and properties of a number of common lasers
describe and compare the most common methods in laser spectroscopy as well as their their applications in studying photochemical and photophysical processes
apply and use laser spectroscopic instruments in practice
Properties of light, interaction between light and matter, principles of laser action, properties of laser radiation, non-linear phenomena and generation of short pulses, laser systesm for spectroscopy, instrumentation for detection of optical signals and time-resolved measurements, absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, non-linear spectroscopy, time-resolved and ultra-fast laser spectroscopy, special applications of laser spectroscopy, laboratory exercises.
Lectures, tutorial exercises, laboratories, seminars and project.
Oral project presentation during the course and written examination at the end of the course, 8 credits. The laboratory component accounts for 2 credits. The final grade corresponds to a weighted sum of the different course components.
The course cannot be counted towards a degree together with 1KB757 Lacer Spectroscopy.
