Ziele

Get idea about nonlinear optics and understand design and applications of ultrashort (picosecond and femtosecond) lasers.

Inhalt

The lecture course starts with an introduction to nonlinear physics and bifurcation theory. Such topics as bifurcations, synchronization and chaos in laser systems are discussed. These topics are also illustrated with other examples from optics and laser technology as well as from everyday's life. Special attention is paid to applications of the nonlinear effects like mode synchronization and self-focussing to generation of ultrashort light pulses. Further, design and operation of ultrashort lasers are discussed. Properties and applications of femtosecond lasers are compared to continuous wave and nanosecond ones.
