Intended learning outcomes

With the previous courses in optics and waves as a background, the goal in this course is to specialize within chosen parts in modern optical physics, with consideration of the special aspects in metrological applications within industry and research.

After the course, the student should be able to:

  • identify physical measurement problems where optics can be applied
  • estimate forced metrological compromises and also be able to carry out some basic measurement tasks.

Furthermore, the goal is to establish a personal contact between the student and the labour market for Masters of Engineering specializing in optics.

Course main content

General metrology and error analysis, photometry, optical detectors, holographic metrology, telecentric systems. perspective, velocity and flow measurements, optical fibers and fiber sensors, interferometry.


Basic knowledge in classical optics SK1120 (Waves, 6 credits) and SK2300 (Optical physics, 6 credits) or equivalent.
Recommended previous knowledge:
SK2301 (Optical physics, 3 credits).
