A new course on "Lasers and their Applications" has been developed by Rami Arieli for Grades 11-12, and college level.

A book was written (in Hebrew), explaining the basic physical principles of laser operation, describing many types of lasers, and many applications of lasers.
The motivation for this course was to use the newly developed technologies to attract students to science, make science relevant by demonstrating every day applications, and explain basic ideas in "modern physics".
