Lambda Research Corporation proposes the Course "Introduction to TracePro" that will be hold next September 13th and 14th 2022 from 16:00 CEST to 18:00 CEST.

This four-hour course, in two separate sessions, provides detailed introductory and advanced uses of TracePro for engineers and scientists who wish to model and analyze the interaction of light with optomechanical system. This course will be a mixture of lecture and hands-on examples. In the examples we will develop a model from beginning to end, from model creation to final analysis. . Attendees wishing to complete the examples during the class must provide their own TracePro license.
