|Title||How to make a laser|
|Description||This is a homework activity that guides students through the process of making a laser, examining the physical processes involved. It was developed to be used in a modern physics course, after lecture instruction on atomic transitions and lasers. For more details about the course, please see: http://per.colorado.edu/modern. This activity was used in a course where questions were constrained to being multiple choice or numeric for computer grading, so it is not as inquiry based.|
