Optical physics at university education: the experience and prospects
Author(s): Valerii P. Kandidov; Nikolai I. Koroteev; Vladimir A. Makarov

Paper Abstract

Development of laser physics has resulted in the fact that the limits of this field have fallen far beyond the scope of conventional physical optics and quantum radiophysics. At present laser physics has virtually transformed into 'optical physics' -- the field of fundamental and applied physics, which employs specific laser and -- more widely -- optical approaches in experimental and theoretical investigations. In the present report we outline the concept of teaching in optical physics and discuss methodical problems of education of students at the Department of General Physics and Wave Processes of the Physics Faculty and International Laser Center of the M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University. The method of teaching in optical physics have resulted from the more than thirty years' experience of work of the Department staff on the training of contemporary highly skilled specialists.
