Section 6: Laser Amplification

Let me just tell you, this is my bread and butter y’all (I am allowed to say this in this context, as I am a Kentuckian and therefore have rights to the application of the contraction of you + all (-: ). This is what I am primarily responsible for in my laboratory, and as such, will be trying to relate the teachings in the next few sections to phenomena I have observed in my lab.
