    An introduction to femtosecond laser science, at 2003 Photonics West Conference (San Jose, CA), Tuesday, January 28, 2003:
    Description: This interactively taught half-day course provides basic knowledge of measurements of and research with femtosecond laser pulses. Beginning with the basic principles of the interaction of light and matter, we?ll discuss the often non-standard aspects of the interaction of intense short pulses with matter. Using worksheets we?ll address a number of common conceptual misconceptions in an interactive and collaborative setting.

    Learning outcomes: This course will enable you to

    • understand the basis for the electronic and optical properties of...

    Femtosecond Techniques for Materials Scientists, at Materials Research Society Annual Meeting (Boston, MA), Sunday, December 1, 2002:
    The tutorial starts at a basic level, so everyone starts out on solid ground, but then quickly advances to state-of-the-art femtosecond techniques. The first part of the tutorial deals with the interaction of light with matter and, after refreshing some basic concepts of electromagnetism, moves on to nonlinear optical processes that are relevant for the propagation of femtosecond laser pulses. The second part deals with measurement techniques. Part of the tutorial will be taught in an interactive format. That is to say, the participants will work through a number of problems in small groups... Read more about Femtosecond Techniques for Materials Scientists
