Laser science

Laser science or laser physics is a branch of optics that describes the theory and practice of lasers.

Laser science is principally concerned with quantum electronics, laser construction, optical cavity design, the physics of producing a population inversion in laser media, the temporal evolution of the light field in the laser, and associated fields such as nonlinear optics and quantum optics.
