Prerequirement

Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Control Engineering

Course Description

(Objective)
The integration of electronic engineering, electrical engineering, computer technology and control engineering with mechanical engineering is increasingly forming a crucial part in the design, manufacture and maintenance of a wide range of engineering products and processes. A consequence of this is the need for engineers and technicians to adopt an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to engineering. The term mechatronics is used to describe this integrated approach. A consequence of this approach is that engineers and technicians need skills and knowledge that are not confined to a single subject area. They need to be capable of operating and communicating across a range of engineering disciplines and linking with those having more specialised skills. In this class, an attempt to provide a basic background to mechatronics and provide links through to more specialised skills is given.

Course Description

(Objectives)
Resonant and nearresonant interaction of light with matter is a subject of study in various branches of physics, such as atomic and molecular physics, quantum electronics, nonlinear and quantum optics, and solid state physics. In this course, we present some fundamentals for the study of the interaction between atoms and light. The course opens with a brief description of real atoms and the model of twolevel atoms. We then describe the electromagnetic field and its mode expansion. We explain the principles and elementary theory of the laser. We describe the interaction between atoms and laser fields. The density operator for atoms interacting with light is introduced. Interesting optical effects such as Rabi oscillations, spontaneous emission, absorption, emission, power broadening, coherent trapping, and electromagnetically induced transparency are discussed.

(Objectives)
The theory of special relativity and the theory of “quanta” emerged at the turn of the 20th century as a fundamental framework for understanding macroscopic and microscopic aspects of the world. The theory of special relativity treats problems related to space and time. The quantum mechanics treats problems related to the building blocks of our world, namely atoms, molecules, and subatomic particles. This course consists of a series of lectures on the theory of special relativity and quantum mechanics. It presents basic concepts required of all branches of modern physics. The focus however is on ideas rather than on technical details or practical applications.
