Laser Electro-Optics Technology

Industrial Technology Division

LEOT-30 INTRODUCTION TO LASER ELECTRO-OPTICS TECHNOLOGY
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Advisories: ENGL-A, ENGL-41; MATH-C or MATH-D.
This course presents the principles and equations that are needed to understand the operation of lasers and how to modify their outputs. The course is designed for technologists who will design, build, modify, install, operate, troubleshoot and repair lasers and laser systems. (11/00)

LEOT-32 LASER TECHNOLOGY
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Prerequisite: LEOT-30.
This course is a continuation of topics presented in LEOT-30 Introduction to Laser Electro-Optics Technology with an emphasis on light sources, optics, and experimental optics methods. The student will continue to develop laser electro-optics systems troubleshooting and problem solving. (12/00)

LEOT-34 LASER ELECTRO-OPTICS COMPONENTS AND DEVICES
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Prerequisite: LEOT-32.
This course is a continuation of the topics presented in the previous Laser Technology course with emphasis at the component level. Troubleshooting and problem-solving skills will also be emphasized at the component level. Subjects covered include optical, electro-optic, and photographic equipment and methods. (12/00)
.
LEOT-36 LASER APPLICATIONS
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Prerequisite: LEOT-34.
This course applies the material covered in previous Laser Electro-Optics classes to actual equipment and test configurations. The student will apply troubleshooting and problem-solving skills to laser equipment and laser systems in practical applications. (12/00)

LEOT-37 LASER ELECTRONICS (APPLICATIONS OF ELECTRONICS) (Also: ELCT-37)
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Prerequisites: ELCT-32, ELCT-33.
This electronics application course covers the electronics segments of laser equipment. Subjects studied include laser high-voltage power supplies, flashlamps and arc lamp circuits, electro-optic and acousto-optic circuits, optical detectors, and electro-optic electronic instrumentation. (12/00)

LEOT-42 PROCESS VACUUM TECHNOLOGY (Also: INDT-42)
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Advisory: INDT-25 or PHYS-10.
This course is designed to provide the student with classroom and laboratory experience in creation and control of the vacuum process environment. The course will cover rough to ultra-high vacuum environments used in the fluid power, semiconductor manufacturing, and laser generation processes. Instruction includes vacuum safety, gas laws, vacuum measurement, pressure and flow control, viscous flow, molecular flow, conductance, pumping systems, connectors, base pressure, cleanliness, vacuum gauging, mass flow control, vacuum processes, residual gas analysis, and process troubleshooting.
