- Electromagnetic fields, propagation in vacuum and matter. - Wave optics. Polarization, interference, optics of thin films, optical measurement techniques.- Diffraction, fourier optics, optical information processing.- Coherence.- Quantum phenomena, lasers and current applications, non-linear optics.
Intended learning outcomes *
The course has primarily two goals- to give a deeper and broader insight into optics as a science and a technology, its basic physics and phenomena and their importance for technical applications- to be a starting point for the following, more specialised courses within the special area of optics and photonics
