Lecture Classes:
MWF 2-2:50 pm in Shepard 101
Laboratory:
Tu: 10:30 -12 or 1 – 2:30 pm in Dearborn 222
[Bring bound lab notebook – can “recycle”
another partly used one] [~3 hours weekly: 1 hour (nominal ) quiz/demonstration session plus
~2 hours in lab group teams by sign-up during the week.] Seven defined laboratories:
(Introduction, photodetectors, source spectra, TEMoo Gaussian beam, laser transverse modes,
longitudinal modes, semiconductor lasers/LEDs) 3-week team design projects.
Prerequisites:
Vast enthusiasm and curiosity! Also, some knowledge of electromagnetic wave propagation
and basic optics (lenses, reflection, refraction) is helpful but not required.

(Required) Kelin J. Kuhn, Laser Engineering, 1998, Prentice-Hall; ISBN 0-02-366921-7
[List of minor corrections will be posted on class web site:

Material Covered:
Here you finally get your money’s worth! We will cover the whole book [Ch 7 and Ch 8: 2-3
only briefly]. Chapters 9-12 are about specific laser systems. They are design-related and
can be read any time – the earlier the better.
