Lecture Series on Laser Fundamentals
This series of two classroom lectures will cover the fundamentals of lasers: how they work, what are their characteristics and what are their important types. We will also discuss some of their exciting and useful applications in industry, medicine, communications, optical disks and art and culture. This is in celebration of 50 years of this exciting discovery. Science students (B.Sc. level) are especially welcome to attend. The lectures are in fact part of a semester long course on Atomic and Laser Physics.
Muhammad Sabieh Anwar completed his D.Phil. from the Department of Physics, Oxford University (UK) in 2004, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar from Pakistan. His dissertation was titled, "Quantum Information Processing using Para-Hydrogen NMR" and revolved around the preparation of pure quantum states for quantum computing. This work also constituted the first demonstration of quantum entanglement in the liquid state.
