Lasers and Optics


Students Enrolled : 1
Total lectures : 31

What will I learn from this course?

  • appreciate lasers and fibre opticsconcepts


  • Anybody who is interested to know about Fibre Optics

Who is the target audience?

  • Anybody who is interested to know about fibre optics


This brief video course is designed for engineers, scientists, medical personnel, managers, and others who work with lasers and/or fiberoptics, or who anticipate working with lasers and/or fiberoptics, yet have little or no background in laser or fiberoptic basics. The course focuses on fundamentals and emphasizes a physical intuitive interpretation of laser and fiberoptic phenomena and their applications. Because Prof. Ezekiel keeps mathematics to a minimum, the topics covered are easily understood, without the need for a strong technical background. Prof. Ezekiel uses plain language, graphic illustrations, and video demonstrations to explain the basic characteristics of lasers and fiberoptics.
