Exploring Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission in Lasers JCE
Michael A. Waxman, University of Wisconsin-Superior
This document allows the students to use a simple approach to study the time evolution of the power output of a laser and its dependence upon the amplification coefficient, the length of the active medium, and the reflectivity of the cavity mirrors.
Femtochemistry JCE
Mark David Ellison, Wittenberg University
Students explore a simple solution to the time-dependent Schrödinger equation in the context of understanding femtochemistryl. After a review of the time-independent harmonic oscillator model studentsstudy the process of exciting molecules with an ultrafast laser pulse and in a superposition that has time-dependent behavior.
