Laser Fundamentals and Experiments.
Van Pelt, W. F.; And Others
As a result of work performed at the Southwestern Radiological Health Laboratory with respect to lasers, this manual was prepared in response to the increasing use of lasers in high schools and colleges. It is directed primarily toward the high school instructor who may use the text for a short course in laser fundamentals. The definition of the laser, laser operation, properties of laser light, biological effects of laser light, laser applications, safety in classroom laser use, and experiment section (equipment necessary for experiments) are included in this manual. This manual is written in a manner to give an intuitive understanding of the device and its inherent properties. The instructor is expected to be conversant with certain of the classical elementary theories of light. (Author/TS)
