March 1, 2007: Laser Source Term

Andrea Hawkins first discussed how the energy from the laser is completely converted into heating since the light does no work on the system [pdf]. Various optical properties and definitions and their relevance to our source term were also discussed. Finally, a theorem was introduced which stated certain assumptions and gave a result of an appropriate source term which is close to our current source term. The proof of this will be presented later.
