Course  Optics
This course provides an introduction to optical science with elementary engineering applications. Topics covered in geometrical optics include: raytracing, aberrations, lens design, apertures and stops, radiometry and photometry. Topics covered in wave optics include: basic electrodynamics, polarization, interference, waveguiding, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction, image formation, resolution, spacebandwidth product. Analytical and numerical tools used in optical design are emphasized. Graduate students are required to complete assignments with stronger analytical content, and an advanced design project. Lecture 10, 12, 19, 21, 24 are not available due to copyright restrictions.
