This 2-Day Fundamentals of Photonics workshop includes an explanation of the nature and properties of light and lasers and optical components. Laser theory and operation along with descriptions of typical laser application examples will be explored. An overview of laser safety will be emphasized.
“Hands-on” laser and optics laboratory activities will be a major part of this workshop. Workshop participants will have a better understanding of photonics technology and the use of photonics in everyday life. Registration will be provided by the Midwest Photonics Education Center and travel expenses will be reimbursed. This workshop qualifies for recertification CEUs for a fee through the Great Prairie Area Education Agency.
