PEP 578 Laser Applications and Advanced Optics

This course covers provides a survey of advanced areas of optics including integrated optics, fiber optics, propagation of light through birefringent crystals, liquid crystals, acousto-optics, electro-optics, nonlinear optics, and ultrafast optics. Particular emphasis is placed on nonlinear optics and wave mixing including harmonic generation, parametric devices, four wave mixing and phase conjugate mirrors, self-phase modulation, solitons, and phase matching.
