Course: Learn Laser Interferometry with Finesse

1 Introduction

1.1 Getting Started

In this directory you find introductory material to IPython/Jupyter Notebook, the simulation software FINESSE and its Python wrapper PyKat. IPython/Jupyter notebook is the interface between you and this material. FINESSE is a frequency domain simulation software for laser interferometry, specialised at gravitational wave laser interferometry. It is actively being used for commissioning and design of gravitational wave detectors.
