Teaching

  • PH-308 Modern Laser Systems

    The objective of this module is to develop a link between basic principles of laser physics and the practical realization of laser systems, which have revolutionised laser applications.

  • PH-312 Advanced Research in Physics

    Experiments conducted in two weekly 3-hour laboratory sessions on topics related to advanced research themes in Physics. Students will be allocated by staff to appropriate themes.
