SK181N Lasers and Applications 6.0 cr
KTH has developed a net based course in physics for those who want to know more about laser physics and its modern applications within optical communication, laser fusion, laser welding, lasers within environmental science. The course fits with those who have studied basic courses in physics and mathematics.
The development within the modern laser physics and its applications within front line research such as laser fusion, holography, optical communication, laser measurements of the ozone layer at the height of 30km, as well as ultra fast laser pulses with laser shots that are more than 1000 million times faster than modern digital cameras.
We, and our computers, communicate by using laser beams traveling through optical fibers. Modern home electronics often consist of solid state lasers. The development within laser technology is thrilling. You might also feel that it is fun to test your physics skills and investigate how it works to study via the internet together with thousands of other students.Perhaps you have started a technical/natural science education and want to broaden your knowledge within physics.
The course is divided into two parts and you can study them in a flexible way at your own speed. The course is completely net based.
