Osaamistavoitteet

After taking the course, the student is able to analyze the operation of continuous-wave lasers using appropriate formalisms to describe their different parts. The student is able to describe the basic phenomena that occur during the light-matter interaction. The student is able to describe light propagation and optical resonators using the matrix formalisms of ray and wave optics and to use them for deriving the modes of laser beams.
