Prerequisites
Basics in optics and laser physics, in particular, Fundamentals of Optics and Photonics; Atomic Physics, Electrodynamics
Skills to be acquired in this module
The students acquire broad experimental knowledge of the application of intense light from femtosecond and high power laser systems. They should be acquainted with the interaction of intense light with matter in general and with respect to important scientific and technical applications (in industry) such as laser material processing, high field physics (i.e. laser matter interaction at high intensity), laser generated particle and radiation sources of ultrashort duration and/or ultrashort wavelength etc
Module contents
Femtosecond and high power laser systems and its application, absorption of intense laser light, basics of laser matter interaction at high intensity, diagnostics, applications in micro machining, laser generated ultrashort radiation such as high-order laser harmonics and femtosecond K-a-sources and keV and MeV electron and ion sources and their application to micro fabrication micro and nano analysis.; atto physics, strong field physics
