PHY649: Advanced experiments in physics: Lasers and optics

        [Cr:4, Lc:0, Tt:0, Lb:12]

Course Outline

This elective course aims to provide hands on training and exposure to the forefront of laser Physics and optical technology. The emphasis would be to assemble few thought provoking experiments from scratch on an optical-table. Indulging into some open-ended experimentation and original thinking would be encouraged.

One would learn nuts and bolts of various available lasers, including the Femtosecond laser system. Coherent manipulation of light by various (bio)-photonic crystal and opto-mechanics of fluid interfaces by radiation pressure shall be covered among other relevant topics.
