  • Swedish
  • Every spring semester
  • The course aims at providing knowledge about basic as well as advanced techniques for manipulating and controlling laser light and laser pulses. This involves controlling intensity, frequency distribution, temporal profiles in order to design advanced optical systems for specialised tasks in industry as well as research
  • •Light propagation in anisotropic materials
    •Acousto-optical effects & modulators
    •Electro-optic effects & modulators
    •Non-linear light-matter interaction
    •Ultrafast optics, pulse propagation of short pulses in dispersive non-linear media
    •Two laboratory exercises: Non-linear optics, Ultrafast optics.

Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to describe the principles for acousto-optic and electro-optical effects and devices

    be able to describe the basic principles for non-linear light matter interaction.

    have the ability to carry out quantitative theoretical calculations of the conversion efficiencies for nonlinear light-matter interactions.

Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to qualitatively and quantitatively analyse advanced optical systems which are based on electro-optic, acousto-optic or non-linear optical effects

    be able to design optical systems for specific tasks based on acousto-optic, electro-optic or non-linear optical effects

    be able to calculate pulse shapes after pulse propagation

    have obtained an improved ability to tackle more complex thesoretical tasks in optics and laser physics

    be able to find, integrate and utilise information from appropriate literature.

Judgement and Approach
