Virtual laboratories in optics: applications to a course on lasers
Author(s): Lionel Bertrand; Sylvain Lefebvre; Stéphane Proulx

Paper Abstract

Virtual laboratories are used to help teaching a course on lasers. The spectral emission of a laser, the Zeeman effect on the laser frequencies, the frequency stabilisation of a laser and the Lamb dip are the subjects chosen to virtually illustrate the properties of a laser. All the laboratories are very close to reality, including possible experimental missteps. The student is under the conditions he can find in the real laboratory and can spend as long as he wishes, at any time. The teacher can track the student via a data base that includes the eventual missteps which the student would have committed.
