Novel laser optical technologies

Short-Term Programmes

Novel laser optical technologies

The program of the International Summer School «Novel Laser Optical Technologies» is created by the academic stuff of the department of General and Technical Physics.

Students are offered to visit lectures, workshops and master classes which allow to get acquainted with the phenomena underlying modern laser optical technologies. It vividly illustrates both the theory and the possibilities of modern laser optical systems, which allow to solve the following problems:
- high-speed fiber-optic data transmission;
- creation of holographic images;
- Fourier analysis and wave filtering technology;
- the use of the phenomenon of artificial optical anisotropy in electromagnetic fields;
- dynamic studies of the parameters of moving media.

During the practice our participants will be able to consolidate and expand knowledge obtained as a result of listening to lecture courses, to get acquainted with the features of the circuit and design implementation of laser optical systems, their nodes and elements, features of alignment and operation, methods of controlling laser radiation, methods of collecting and processing experimental data.
In addition to the main program, participants will have a chance to visit the Center for collective use of high-tech equipment at Mining University.
