Lasers and Light Sources
The lecture "Lasers and Light Sources" is presented in English language. It covers the basics of light and the generation of radiation. The lecture first introduces the principles of human vision and the physics of light and color. The audience acquires knowledge about the fundamentals of coherent and incoherent light sources, as well as some semiconductor physics which is necessary to understand the excitation and recombination processes that govern the generation and emission of radiation in light emitting diodes and semiconductor lasers.
