Paper Abstract

The advent of laser not only gave an impetus to further development of optics, not only breathed new life irto many branches of this science, not only led to the use of optics for non-optical applications but opened new ways teaching optics as well. Nowadays you cannot teach optics without quantum electronics. But having pointed to new possibilities of optics, quantum electronics by no means revised its fundamental concepts. Moreover quantum electronics is based on fundamental concepts of the XIX—XX century optics. Its appearance, formation, and development confirmed thine, extended the sphere oftheir practicalapplication, and made the bases of optics as a science more striking, spectacular and intelligible.
