SK2360 Laser Metrology and Optical Metrology 6.0 credits

Lasermätteknik och optisk mätteknik

Offering and execution

Course offering missing for current semester as well as for previous and coming semesters

Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Optics repetition. Laser and laser radiation, optical fibers. Distance and velocity measurements. Measurement illustrations. Holographic methods.

Intended learning outcomes *

The main goals are to present optical measurement methods to all kinds of MMT Master of engineering students, to ensure that this alternative exists when solving measurement problems; to present modern optronics to the target group; to make the students comfortable with technical presentations to a non-technically educated group.

After the course, the student will be able to:

  • propose measurement strategies related to optics and lasers and estimate the functionalities in comparison to other measurement systems
  • present solutions for decision-making to management groups with non-technical educations
  • read articles about technical progress, for example in The Scientific American and summarize as a presentation to the above mentioned group.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale *

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Examination *

  • RED1 - Report, 2.0 credits, Grading scale: P, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 4.0 credits, Grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade *

Examination in two parts:
a technical news article in English or another non Swedish language will be summarized and presented to a non-technically educated group of people (RED1; 2 credits, grading scale P/F)
oral exam where the range and general view of the topic is presented to the teacher (TEN1; 4 credits, grading scale A-F).

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

Ethical approach *

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
