Lasers 7-9

Students learn about laser safety, properties, theory, and design through demonstrations and experiments.

Experiments cover fiber optics, reflection, refraction, holograms, and lasers as measurement tools. Topics include laser design, laser physics, continuous and pulsed lasers, types of lasers, and laser applications.

Laser projects include measuring refraction indices, navigating laser mazes, experimenting with fiber optics, and building spectroscopes. This course uses only low-power, “eyesafe” lasers, and students wear safety goggles.
