Skills to be acquired in this module

Physics with ultrashort pulses:

Students will get competences on the special aspects on ultrashort laser pulses which do not play a role in standard optics or laser physics. Starting from basics, the module yields advanced knowledge of the physics of femtosecond light pulses and their interaction with matter, as well as the physics of femtosecond lasers. The students will obtain skills to work with such lasers, in particular, on generation, handling, measurement, application of femtosecond pulses.

Fourier methods:

The students acquire deeper knowledge on Fourier mathematics and ist applications within physics. They will learn related definitions, properties, theorems. Many examples will be presented. The students should be able to apply Fourier technology for physical and technical problems, in particular with relation of spatial and temporal domain to (spatial) frequency domain. They will get deepened insight on physical procedures by analysis within frequency domain.
