|OBJECTIVES:||This course covers the basic principles of laser operations and applications with particular emphasis on laser safety. Beginning with an introduction to incoherent and coherent light sources, the structure of the atom, emission processes, and stimulated emission of radiation will be studied. Next, laser output characteristics and modification, laser materials and components, and common types of industrial lasers will be studied. Included is an overview of major industrial laser applications.|
|LEARNING OUTCOMES:||Students should be:
1. Able to demonstrate knowledge of fundamental aspects of laser physics and the laser principles behind of all types of lasers. (CTPS3, C3)
2. Able to apply the knowledge of the fundamental aspects of laser physics as well as quantitative reasoning and mathematical analysis skills to effectively solve problems. (LL3, P2)
3. Able to demonstrate understanding of the applications of both low power and high power laser.(EM2, A2)
|TRANSFERABLE SKILLS:||1. Scientific and technical knowledge
3. Design skills
4. Life long learning
